Bacon-Wrapped Zucchini Fries
“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.”
1Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 475°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
2Combine 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.
3Bake for 10 minutes. Turn zucchini and continue to bake until the bacon is crisp and the zucchini is tender and golden on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes more. Serve hot.
