These Zucchini Fritters are my favorite summer recipe! They are easy to make and a great way to use up this garden favorite vegetable!
The zucchini are coming, the zucchini are coming! It's that time of year where that ONE plant you have in your garden is exploding with lots of veggies and you need something to do with them!
That's where this recipe of Zucchini Fritters will help you out. Yep you can make bread, muffins or even a vegetarian lasagna but this side dish is so easy to do and one of my favorite ways to enjoy the mass producing veggie!
These were always a staple at my grandmother's house for her 'down the yard' picnics BUT she used cut up pumpkin flowers.
I don't grow pumpkins nor have I been able to find them at our farmer's market, so based on my mom's suggestion, I've substituted some grated zucchini - they still have the taste I crave from my youth.
What's your favorite way to enjoy zucchini? I would love to know - I MAY have a few to use up 🙂
Easy Zucchini Fritters
Use up that extra zucchini with these tasty fritters
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup milk (more if needed)
- ¼ cup parmesan or romano cheese finely grated
- ¾ cup flour
- about 1 cup shredded zucchini
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- Oil for frying
- In a shallow bowl, mix the egg, milk, cheese, flour, some S&P, and zucchini (I grate the zucchini about an hour head of time and roll it in paper towels twice to remove most of moisture)
- Add baking powder
- If batter is too thick add additional milk – it should resemble a thin pancake batter
- Heat ½″ oil in a large skillet until hot
- Drop 2 tablespoons of batter into hot oi
- Turn when it is golden brown on one side (about 3-4 minutes on each side)
- Fry until the bottom is golden brown and drain on paper towels – lightly salt.
- Best served warm
