  1. Squeeze grated zucchini in paper towels to release as much water as possible. Spread zucchini on fresh paper towels and sprinkle with salt; let sit for 30 minutes to release additional water; squeeze again.
  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, eggs, green onions, garlic, basil, nutmeg, onion powder, and black pepper in a bowl; add zucchini. Stir to combine.
  3. Heat butter and olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Form golf ball-sized zucchini patties and place in hot frying pan. Fry until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

I make a similar recipe, but add Old Bay Seasoning and also bread crumbs to give it shape. I do not use basil or nutmeg and then flour the cakes and fry in oil. They taste like crab cakes!

Wonderful flavor! Can also be frozen and reheated either in a frying pan or microwave. One tip: I was trying to figure out how to make these for a crowd, but the salting, draining, etc. was ju...

Nommy. They tasted super good. I didn't take the time to properly drain the zucchini because I don't have any paper towels at the moment (I also excluded the onion powder because I don't have an...

Loved this, our resolution was to go low carb and these were delicious. I didn't have to tweek anything.

I thought this was a clever low-carb breakfast. I couldn't get the patties to stick together so I threw it all in the pan together and I loved how it turned out! I thought they tasted almost lik...
