Many years ago, I learned how to make these easy zucchini fritters. Want to know why? Because zucchini is cheap in the summer but my family hates it! Seriously. They make gaggy noises and scrunch their noses up every time I try to put zucchini on their plates. I have tried a lot of zucchini recipes over the years and hiding zucchini in some sort of bread product is the only way they will eat it. During the summer when there is so much zucchini, I make a lot of zucchini bread, muffins, and these easy zucchini fritters. I figure they are still getting plenty of veggies, right? I am just hiding them creatively in a form they will actually consume without too much complaint!
Zucchini fritter recipes are really fairly simple. You need to shred the zucchini (I keep the skin on and just wash it well). You will have to squeeze out the excess liquid from the zucchini fritters or they will end up way too wet and soggy. You need to add a flour/egg mixture to the shredded zucchini and then you can get creative with add-ins like shredded cheese, spices, garlic, etc. I love adding Parmesan cheese to these easy zucchini fritters and then shred some additional over the top once I go to serve them.
You will need to be patient as these zucchini fritters cook....don't turn the heat up too high. You will need to let them cook for a bit to dry out the batter. I have a tendency to be very impatient and they can end up a bit soggy if you take them off the griddle too early. This summer, I will be scouring the Internet for more zucchini recipes but I think I will have to stick with ones that allow me to hide the actual zucchini from my family. If you have any tried and true zucchini recipes you think they will like, please let me know!
