The breading for these zucchini curly fries takes on the flavor of a classic everything bagel while the tangy, creamy sauce finishes off this fun appetizer that's perfect for a party or brunch. Store-bought everything seasoning can be loaded with salt, so it's best to make your own at home. Look for fresh and crisp-looking zucchini noodles in the produce section or make your own using a spiralizer. Soggy ones (or even the frozen variety) won't crisp up well.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; coat with cooking spray. Chop zucchini noodles into 5- or 6-inch-long pieces. Working in batches, dredge the zoodles in the cornstarch; shake off excess. Dredge in the egg whites; shake off excess. Dredge in the panko mixture; shake off excess. Arrange the zoodles in a single layer, spaced evenly, on the prepared baking sheets. Coat with cooking spray.

  • Bake until golden and crispy, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with the reserved sesame seed mixture.

  • Meanwhile, whisk cream cheese, water, sour cream, chives and vinegar in a small bowl; serve with the zucchini fries.
