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!!!!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Yummy!!! and super easy!
I only added some fresh anethum and parsley!
Thank you for posting!
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
Big Hit! added 2 eggs, 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs instead of dry and could not find mint so used fresh dill instead.
