Kids will love this take on fries, even though they're secretly made from an unexpected vegetable. Marinara Dipping Sauce makes a tasty alternative to ketchup. Kids can help by cracking the eggs, shaking the flour mixture and dipping the zucchini sticks. Have them use one hand for dry ingredients and the other for wet, so the breading sticks to the zucchini and not their fingers.

MethodCut zucchini crosswise then lengthwise into thirds; slice into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick strips. Pat dry.
In bag, shake flour, half of the salt and the pepper. In bowl, beat eggs, 1 tbsp water and remaining salt.
In shallow dish, combine bread crumbs with garlic powder.
Add zucchini to flour mixture and shake to coat. One at a time, dip strips into egg mixture. Dredge in crumb mixture, pressing to adhere.
Bake on greased baking sheet in 450ºF (230ºC) oven, tossing halfway through, until tender and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
