If you’re looking for a simple and delicious way to make use of the surplus zucchini from your garden, these cheesy zucchini patties are the perfect solution.
2 cups grated zucchini
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup chopped onion
Salt, to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Begin by preparing the zucchini. Grate the zucchini and place it in a medium-sized bowl.
Add the beaten eggs, all-purpose flour, grated Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, chopped onion, and a pinch of salt to the bowl with the grated zucchini. Stir the mixture thoroughly until all the ingredients are well combined.
In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it’s hot and shimmering.
To form the patties, scoop out tablespoonfuls of the zucchini mixture and carefully place them into the hot oil. You may need to work in batches to avoid overcrowding the skillet.
Fry the zucchini patties for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they turn a beautiful golden brown color and become crispy.
Once they are nicely browned and crispy, remove the zucchini patties from the skillet and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
Serve your cheesy zucchini patties hot, perhaps with a side of your favorite dipping sauce or a dollop of sour cream.
These cheesy zucchini patties are not only a fantastic way to use up your garden zucchini but also a delightful appetizer or side dish that everyone will love. Enjoy their crispy, cheesy goodness!
