Baked Zucchini Sticks

  • 1 1/2 Cups Cheerios Cereal
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Gluten-Free Italian Seasoning
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Dash Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Butter (melted)

Parmesan-Yogurt Dip

  • 3/4 Cup Greek Plain Yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 1 Teaspoon Finely Chopped Herbs (basil, thyme, or rosemary leaves)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper or foil. Finely crush cereal. (To easily crush cereal, place in plastic bag or between sheets of waxed paper, and crush with rolling pin.)
  2. In medium bowl, stir together crushed cereal, cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. In small bowl, stir together melted butter and milk. Dip zucchini into butter mixture, then roll in cereal mixture to coat evenly. Place on cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 9 minutes; turn zucchini over. Bake about 8 minutes longer or until coating is light golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together Parmesan-Yogurt Dip ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

The Parmesan-Yogurt Dip can be made up to a day ahead. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve!
