Deliciously Savory Baked Zucchini Fries

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Deep River Snacks. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I was a little kid, I once heard a joke – “If you see someone buying zucchini at the grocery store, then you know they don’t have any friends.” I remember all the grown-ups laughing, I laughed along not really getting why this joke was actually funny… I remember thinking this was weird, and also at the same time, I never remember my Mom actually buying zucchini but come fall it miraculously showed up on our front porch. 

As an official grown-up person, {although I never feel like I am actually a grown up} I get the joke! For years we had a plentiful garden with mountains of zucchini, it was the highlight of my late summer and early fall – I put zucchini in everything, even protein shakes, way more delicious then it sounds. And whatever I didn’t use we shared with neighbors and friends! 

But after living in 3 states in 3 years and not having a garden or any good-hearted neighbors who surprised us with dropped off zucchini, I have had to buy mine at the store. Not sure if this should make me feel sad or sorry for myself… Don’t worry, I have plenty of friends, just not the garden growing types of friends. 

Luckily, my local grocery store had a beautiful supply! And I don’t think I got one dirty look, as I put a huge bag in my cart. 😉 

Although I have not received any zucchini on my porch I did receive 4 boxes of potato chips form my good friends at Deep River Snacks. They know how to make a delicious chip and give quite generously!  

So what do potato chips and zucchini have in common??  Nothing really except when you pair them to make delicious savory baked zucchini fries – magic happens! Like I want to eat these fries for the rest of my life magic! 

My inspiration for these savory zucchini fries came from me grazing on some of the all-natural rosemary and olive oil flavored chips. the flavor was so good that I was thinking crushing them and making a crust would be $$$ money! And I was not wrong, friends 

They are pretty simple to throw together and would make an excellent side dish, appetizer or just a tasty snack! The chips make the fries super savory and just the right amount of crunch.

    These baked zucchini fries are so tasty. I used some of my last garden zucchini and dipped them in some comeback sauce. So yummy!
