“Kids Corner” Oven Baked Summer Squash Fries

Thanks to Benedictine University Dietetic Intern Amanda Ruddy for sharing this recipe. Amanda says, “this dish is appealing to children because it is similar to French fries. Children can help dip the squash into the breadcrumbs or even eggs if they are washing their hands properly, and help coat the squash.”

1 large summer squash

1⁄2 cup of flour

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Salt & Pepper

2 eggs

1 cup of panko bread crumbs

Olive Oil

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds. Then cut the squash into small wedges (or sticks, whatever the children choose), Mix the flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper into a bowl. In another bowl whisk the two eggs. Brush the baking sheet with olive oil and place the wedges into a flour mix for coating. Next, dip each wedge into the eggs and coat fully. Then take the wedges and dip them in the breadcrumbs. Place onto the baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, flipping them half way through.

Serves 2 – 4
