Let’s Get Started

  1. Dice your onion, grate your zucchini, mince your garlic and up your parsley
  2. Mix the shredded zucchini, onion, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, baking power and butter together.
  3. Add in your eggs milk and mix well.
  4. Finally, add the flour to your ingredients and mix it in well.
  5. Heat olive oil in your cast iron skillet. Once you see the oil begin to heat up, use a spoon to dish small blob into your hot oil. Do this until you have several fritters sizzling.
  6. When you begin to see them brown on the bottom, flip them over and cook the other side.
  7. Once cooked through, take them out of the oil
  8. Serve warm. That’s the way they taste the best!

This recipe was a hit with my family. There were no tears and the kids actually asked for seconds, which is a miracle. These days any time I can hide some veggies in a meal, serve it up and have them eat it without complaint, I’ll take! Next time I made this dish, I’m going to whip up a garlic and basil aioli to go with it. I think it would’ve been the perfect compliment, but I didn’t think about it till after I had already started serving dinner.

Enjoy!
