Zucchini Fritters


1 medium zucchini (about 2 1/4 cups shredded)

½ teaspoon salt or to taste

1 egg

½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese or chedddar cheese

¼ cup seasoned bread crumbs

1 green onion thinly sliced

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese

½ teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon vegetable oil for frying

**To add a little more flavor to these, we like to add dill!


  1. Start by grating your zucchini using the larger holes on a box grater. If you have a bigger zucchini, make sure to remove any large seeds with a spoon.

  2. Sprinkle the shredded zucchini with salt and let it rest in a colander for about 5-10 minutes to draw out excess moisture.

  3. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the zucchini using a cheesecloth or a clean kitchen towel.

  4. In a bowl, mix the zucchini with the egg, cheese, breadcrumbs, green onion, flour, and baking powder until well combined.

  5. Shape the mixture into four patties, each about 3-inches across.

  6. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the zucchini patties.

  7. Cook each patty for 3 to 5 minutes per side until they're a deep, golden brown.
