Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil, and place the potato into the water. Boil until tender, about 20 minutes; remove and let cool. When cool enough to handle, finely dice.

  • In a bowl, mix together the cooked potato, zucchini, egg, onion, mint leaves, feta cheese, and bread crumbs to make a mixture that holds together when pressed lightly.

  • Place flour into a separate shallow dish. Form the zucchini mixture into small patties, and dredge patties in flour on both sides.

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry the zucchini patties until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain the patties on paper towels; serve hot.

Cook's Note:

You can spoon drop the mixture into frying pan if the consistency isn't forming patties well. Just lightly flatten once in pan to evenly cook.

LOVE this! I added some caraway seeds, and baked instead of fried. Only used 2 zucchini. It was easy to form. No problem, not too wet or dry. Absolutely perfect and will make them a thousand more times. Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!! Read More

I have a personal recipe for zucchini patties and a favorite one from this site. I thought I would try this one for something a little different. Taste wise I would give them at least a 4. However they are very GREASY! Plus they are not only time-consuming to make but very messy! The patties did not want to hold together at all. I am going to blaim that on the zucchini I had. I had to squeeze a lot of water out of it which I had never had to do before. The other recipes use 1-2 Tblsp or butter or oil. The patties hold together on their own. I found the dipping the patty in flour before cooking a little tedious. The flour mixture or more eggs should have went into the bowl to hold them together. I got one good batch but I may not even try making the rest as they are a pain. Unless I can figure some way to thicken the batter which I may finally do. Hopefully I will also be able to use less oil than also. Read More

Nice flavour just a bit on the soft side added some extra breadcrumbs. Put them in the oven for 5 minutes to crisp up a little seved on pita with tatziki lettuce cucumber and tomato. Finished with a squeeze of lemon. Very nice worth making again and experimenting with a little. Read More

Holy moly these are AWESOME. This will definitely become a family tradition. I recommend one small change-dredge the fritters in panko bread crumbs instead of flour. Serve fritters with tzatiki sauce and you will be dining with Zeus. Read More

These were a big hit! The only changes I made was that I baked instead of fried and left out the bread crumbs and instead used a few tablespoons of whole wheat flour to keep them together. Read More

When I put zucchini in a recipe I always squeeze the moisture out thoroughly with a towel. It dries it out and makes it easier to work with Read More

We LOVED these! I do agree w/ the other reviewer that they were a bit soft to work with (and I only used 1 zucchini) but other than that they were great! These had wonderful flavor and texture and I really enjoyed the added potato. I also added in a bit of garlic powder to the mix as well just because. Will definately be making these again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
