Zucchini Fries, Low Carb, THM S

Anyone else have about a bazillion zucchini setting on their counter right now?  I do!  I do!  I've made zucchini bread (this is the best ever recipe!), zucchini lasagna, zucchini brownies, chocolate zucchini cake, diced it and hidden it in ground beef and made these clever zucchini fries!  They were pretty darn yummy dipped in marinara sauce. These are e a yummy low carb side dish, or if you're on THM they compliment a great S meal (net carbs are 3 grams per 8 fries).   Enjoy :)

2 small/medium zucchini
3/4 cup graded Parmesan
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Lightly grease a baking sheet (you can also line it).
Cut each zucchini into sticks about 4 inches long and 1/2 inch thick. (Mine were a hair to big and didn't get super crunchy.)
Make an assembly line with 1 bowl having the Parmesan cheese and spices and the other bowl having a whisked egg.
Dip each zucchini fry into egg, shake of excess, and then press into Parmesan cheese mixture to coat.
Place dipped fries onto baking sheet in a single layer trying not to make them touch.
Bake 15-20 minutes while flipping halfway through and rotating pan.  Bake until golden and crispy.
