I'm always looking for flavorful recipes that increase my veggie intake without being saturated in cheese or cream sauces. This one fills the bill. The crispy fritters are delicious and fun to eat with or without the dipping sauces. -Laura Mize Waco, Kentucky

A tasty way to use an abundance of zucchini.

Great use of the zucchini from my garden! Mine needed more flour to stick together in the deep fryer, but this wouldn't be a problem if I pan-fried them. Did not make the sauce and found them good plain.

st pattys day i found a recipe for zucchini potato pancakes and were they a hit,i be sure to try these,oh! u might want to use horsradishes for extra flavor!!

MY REVIEW

These are so yummy. I've made the twice now, once deep fried per the recipe and once pan fried. I recommend pan frying them as they taste the same, there's less mess and they're healthier. I use my hands to shape each one to about the size/thickness of a pancake, and they come out perfect!

How much horseradish should you use for the second dip?
