Zucchini and Corn Fritters


With all the zucchini I have fresh and frozen, this is my favorite way to eat it for breakfast. It's also great for the kids to eat as a snack, cold right out of the refrigerator (no need for plate or silverware).

Prep Time:

Total Time:
25 mins
10 4-inch fritters


  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup cornmeal

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese (Optional)

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons plain yogurt

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 cups grated zucchini

  • 1 cup grated carrots

  • 1 cup corn kernels

  • cup minced onion

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed


  1. Mix flour, cornmeal, Cheddar cheese, egg, yogurt, baking powder, salt, and pepper together. Add zucchini, carrots, corn, and onion.

  2. Coat the bottom of a large frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat. Place spoonfuls of mixture into the hot pan, gently pressing down each fritter. Cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

I have never omitted the zucchini but I have used lots of other vegetables instead of the ones listed. Just remember, if you are not sauteeing any vegetables first they must be cut very small in order to cook completely in the fritter.

Use any cheese you like.
