Zucchini Fritters...

With so many zucchini growing in our garden I was looking
for a few new recipes to try and when 
I saw this one on Facebook, I knew I had to put these fritters
together as soon as possible.

Zucchini Fritters...




I made just a few changes from the original recipe posted HERE.

Ingredients:

1 pound zucchini, grated

2 eggs lightly beaten

1/4 cup parsley, chopped (I didn't use as much)
1 Tbs. chopped chives (optional)

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8-1/4 tsp nutmeg 
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper to taste


Begin by grating your zucchini...


Combine the rest of the ingredients...


And then add the grated zucchini and mix to form a batter.

TIP:
If you find that your batter is too stiff, you can add a little milk 
or let the batter sit for about 10 minutes.  
The natural "water" that is in the zucchinis
will begin to come out and make the batter more workable.  


In a heavy pan, heat up some oil and drop
a heaping spoonful of the batter into the hot oil.
I used a cookie scoop...


Cook for a few minutes on one side and then flip to
 continue cooking on the other side...


Remove and drain on a sheet pan that is lined with paper towel.
As you can see, I couldn't wait to try one...



DELICIOUS...


Please don't forget to come back tomorrow for our 
Foodie Friends Friday Linky Party.


I would LOVE for all my FRIENDS 
here to join the FUN!

  18. Happy Saturday Lois,
    Those zucchini fritters look awesome.
    I made zucchini pancakes several times a few years ago and they were wonderful. In fact, I froze some and they were great for a quick snack or a side dish in a hurry. Put a lil sour cream on them and UMMM UMMM Good!
    Think I will have to make some again soon.
    Thanks for stoppin in hon, and hope you have a great weekend too.
    Blessings, Nellie
