Zucchini Fritters

Yum... I really like these.  Back in the day at family picnics (or as we would say "down in the yard") , my grandmother would make these fritters but would use pumpkin flowers.  Well, I don't grow pumpkins and have seldom seen them at the farmer's market, so I substituted grated zucchini and thought the flavor was still great!

The recipe is quite simple:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • "handful" grated parmesan or romano cheese
  • S&P
  • 1/2 tsp baking power
  • ~2 cups grated zucchini (that has been squeezed pretty dry)
Mix and then drop about 1/4 cup batter (it looks like a thin pancake batter) into a skillet that has about 1/2" hot oil.  Cook until golden brown, turn and when done sprinkle with some extra salt.

With all the zucchinis that are still available, here's a new way to use them up!  If you give them a try, I hope like them as much as I do :-)

  1. YUM! I just made something similar but I added shredded carrots (since the hubby won't normally eat them). Surprise! He loved them and asked for more.
