These delicious, low-carb "fries" are wrapped in bacon and baked in the oven until they achieve a nice crispy coating. To keep the coating crisp, serve them on a large plate or platter (not piled in a dish) alongside BBQ sauce, ranch dressing or your favorite sauce for dipping. Thinly sliced bacon works best in this recipe for easy wrapping.

  • Ready In

  1. Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 475°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a large sealable bag. Place egg whites in a medium bowl. Working in batches, toss zucchini sticks in the egg whites, then place in the bag with the flour mixture. Toss until coated. Wrap a piece of bacon around each zucchini stick. Arrange, seam-side down and not touching, on the prepared baking sheet. Coat the zucchini with cooking spray.
