shredded yellow squash
corn muffin mix
eggs, lightly beaten
vegetable oil, or more as needed
Very good and healthy! I just used 1/2 cup of corn meal, and added a few dashes of onion powder and 2 Tb of parmesan cheese. Make sure to drain on paper towels before cooking.
Since we like anything Mexican, I used Mexican cornbread mix. Like some of the other reviews I think it would be very bland without it. Mine didn't get very crispy, maybe I didn't get enough water out.
These were tasty, but next time I'll add more veggies and some spice.... I wanted a little kick to these
Pretty good. I plan on playing with the spices a bit next time. I drained the zucchini by placing it in a colander first and pushing my metal mixing bowl down onto it. I then placed the mixture in a kitchen towel and folded it over, pushed a glass pie plate on top which allowed me to see how much water was being pushed out based on how wet the towel got. I am glad I did the colander first because I could have easily gone through a couple towels.
This was ok, but like the other reviews I found it to be a bit bland....it needed something. After trying a few random things, I topped one of them with Parmesan cheese and that was the ticket! Next time I'll add the cheese to the filling and that should do it!
This was ok - I didn't have yellow squash so used all zucchini instead. I don't think I enjoyed the cornbread mix in this recipe. I did like the carrots in the recipe. I also think it needs onion and other seasonings.
This was a nice light fritter. The corn meal was a different change and a great way to try something new with all my garden zucchini. I took advice and added 2 tbsp of spicey rub in the mix. Could have used perhaps more. My youngest put hot sauce on them and enjoyed. Easy to do.
I use this basic recipe as a launching pad. Otherwise, you're going to end up with something pretty darn bland. This recipe can be taken in any number of flavorful directions to suit your immediate needs, or to enhance a main dish or entree. Understand thiis and feel free to improvise and use your imagination. I add onion, garlic, parsley, and spice.
