    Good, not great! If made again, need to bake differently to make crustier!

    It’s tasty but mine were much too oily/buttery.

    It was amazing!!! I had to rush before work so I cut my zucchini up into slices and then into quarters. That sped up cooking time then we topped it with parmesan. Sooo good!

    very good, would have added a bit of salt to the seasoning.

    It was mediocre at best. The Italian seasoning I used was too strong and the cheese slid off the zucchini sticks.

    really good, I've never cooked zucchini like this. i recommend a different herb blend though, i used bbq rub, Korean bbq, and garlic powder. all were better than just Italian. going to use less oil next time and make them more bite size

    I cut some of my zucchini widthwise, like I was making chips, and I liked it that way better. My boyfriend said that they were both great. It's hard to get him to eat veggies so I will definitely make this again.

    I ended up wishing I had that magic oil spritzer the author was talking about...those were an olive oil-y, buttery mess, though still pretty tasty. The other problem I had was the individual zucchini sticks all stuck together in a gooey clump because of the melted/browned cheese. I think it's all a technique issue vs. the recipe's fault, but it was harder to execute than it looked, to me.

    Pretty good, ended up whipping up a marinara dipping sauce to go with it since it needed a little oomf.

    I followed the directions but the zucchini was soggy and didn't have much flavor.

    It was tasty, just mushy. I would make it differently next time and dredge in flour first, then eggs, then breadcrumbs. Ah, what the heck. I'm gonna fry these!

    My 5 year-old is in his "I don't like vegetables at all" stage. I figured I would give these a try because of the great reviews. After buying the ingredients, I noticed that it recommended the chunky grated parmesan rather than the fine powdery stuff, but I had picked out the powdery kind and I thought it still worked fine. I just took each piece and rolled it in the cheese after dusting it with the melted butter. The verdict? "Stop eating my fries, mommy!" is what I got after putting a whole plate of them on the kitchen table for the whole family to share. The only thing I didn't like is that mine were kind of flimsy and soggy, but I am not sure that I got most of the seeds out which will make them more moist. This recipe is very easy and quick for working moms like me who need to put something healthy and homemade on the table.
