This recipe was given to me after smelling them cooking in my neighbor's kitchen while working in the garden. Zucchini is mixed with onion and cheese into some heavenly fritters. I look forward to making them every summer, all summer! You will too!!!

  • Heat about 1 tablespoon of shortening in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of the batter into the skillet, and flatten slightly with the back of a spatula. Turn fritters over when the center appears dry. Cook on the other side until golden brown. Set aside and keep warm. Add more shortening to skillet as needed, and continue with remaining batter.

This recipe is good. I grate the zucchini instead of chopping. I don't know why the recipe calls for milk tho. The zucchini is naturally moist and the eggs add plenty of liquid. I leave the milk out. Read More

I had to bump the spices way up on this. More salt pepper cheese and still they seemed a little bland. I got a packet of fajita spice blend from the cupboard and put in about a teaspoon or two of that and they were much better. I also made a dipping sauce out of horseradish mayo and sour cream. Hubby liked them a lot. Read More

I just made these and I think they are excellent. I grated the zucchini and subbed parmesan for the cheese and shallot for the onion. Very crispy fritters with a nice taste. I would not change a thing. And I would not wait until summer - these are great in the winter too! Read More

As per other user's 'bland' warning I used 1 cup of shredded colby/jack cheese instead of romano added 1 small chopped green bell pepper 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro substituted bisquick for the flour added a dash of cumin and paprika and only used about a tablespoon of milk.(Next time I will omit.) They were awesome! Thanks! Read More

These were amazing. I shredded the zuccini and used butter instead of shortening. They were the best part of the meal. They were even good cold as leftovers. Read More

We forgot the salt and pepper and they were still absolutely delicious (even the next day). Served with sour cream and got raves from everyone! Read More

I have never tried a recipe like this before & was very pleased. Even my two year old daughter liked them! It's a great way to add veggies to your diet without losing taste. It did seem like it was missing something. I will be making these again & trying a few new spices in it to see if I can't add a little more flavor to them. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

kind of tasteless you need to add alot of salt and garlic powder to give them flavor. I think you should add a tablespoon of baking powder to make them more like potato pancakes. Read More
