Baked Zucchini Fries

Do you love french fries? Yeah, me too. Too bad they're terrible for you. Luckily there's a delicious healthy alternative: baked zucchini fries! No really, they're totally delicious. They aren't exactly like french fries, but close enough and with zero guilt, plus, they're super easy to make. We got the recipe here, and only changed it a bit.
Some zucchinis (1 large-ish zucchini yields about 2 servings)
1 egg white
Bread crumbs
Parmesan cheese
Seasoning salt

Step 1: Peel and slice up your zucchini into fry shaped strips. Now that I'm looking back at the original recipe, it says you don't actually have to peel them, so we just added an extra step for fun.
Step 2: For this step we weren't too picky about measuring out specific amounts. Throw some bread crumbs in a ziploc, then sprinkle in some seasoning salt and parmesan cheese. It's not rocket science, just toss in whatever looks good! If you don't cook that way you can look at the original recipe to see how much of everything you should use.
Step 3: Separate out your egg white and empty it on to a plate. Coat your zucchini strips in the egg. (The original recipe calls for butter instead of an egg white, so do as you will.)
Step 4: Place your coated zucchini strips in the bag of goodness and shake it up.
Step 5: Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 for 15 minutes or until golden and delicious!
