Healthy, delicious, easy to make, great alternative to fries and even the kids couldn't get enough crunchy goodness. Make more than you think you need. Note: I dipped the squash in flour before the egg bath - worked perfectly. Also, I used leftover zucchini from a charcoal grill that were still a little bit firm. Probably added extra flavor, and they were amazingly not overcooked after baking in this recipe. From now on I'll plan it that way. :)
