For the baked zucchini fries:
For the yogurt dipping sauce:
To bake the zucchini fries:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a large sheet pan with olive oil.
Lightly beat the eggs and milk together in a medium bowl.
In a separate medium bowl, stir the panko breadcrumbs and cheese together.
Dip zucchini sticks in the egg mixture, making sure to coat them well. Dip the egg coated zucchini into the panko mixture.
Spread out the coated zucchini pieces onto the prepared sheet pan. Season generously with salt and pepper and bake for about 15 minutes. Flip the zucchini sticks over with a spatula and bake for another 15 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
To complete the dish:
Mix the Greek yogurt, chopped parsley and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the chopped scallion on top.
Serve the yogurt sauce alongside the fries, for optional dipping. Enjoy!
