Zucchini Cakes

"If you like crab cakes, try this unusual version made from zucchini. 'Maryland is famous for its crab cakes, but this recipe can sure fool you,' says Pat Tillman of Pylesville, Maryland. They're easy and economical, too, at 41 cents each."

Very good but I fooled nobody! We love crab cakes and this just isn't anything to compare. Excellent, but don't try to fool anyone.

Flavor could fool you! Be sure the zucchini is very finely shredded. Does not stay together real well, as a "cake".

These are really, really good! You do need to make patties small otherwise they fall apart and are a little mushy
