Reviews for Zucchini Fritters
"These fritters were so good! The ranch seasoning made them really good!"
"Excellent!!! These were so good--will definitely make again and share the recipe with all the gardeners I know!!!"
"They puffed just as promised! Instead of the ranch dry, I added 1/4c of shredded parm, 1t of oregano and 1/2t salt. I also used more of a rounded tablespoon as opposed to teaspoon and served with ranch dressing as a dip. Very good."
"Excellent. Tasted like a restaurant appetizer. Made homemade ranch to dip them in."
"We grow our own vegetables, which means we get an abundance of zucchini. This recipe is really outstanding and so easy and quick to make. My Fiancé and I love them! I give this recipe a 5 star for sure!"
"I made these tonight with zucchini and yellow squash. I did not use the Ranch packet but did add grated onion, garlic salt and pepper. I also cooked them using a cast iron skillet with a shallow amount of oil. Instead of balls they came out more like zucchini cakes or patties, as intended. I made a creamy dill sauce that was drizzled over the fritters. They were perfect for Meatless Monday! I still have more batter left over and plan to make some more fritters in the morning with sunny side eggs."
"Made these as a side dish and used the whole pkt of ranch, the batter wasn't thick but as they cook they "poof " up a little!, mine came out not as round as the pic posted with the recipe, they were very good but gave them 4 stars because they were still a little oily after I paper toweled them"
"I didn't have any ranch style dip so I use the Italian one instead and it was very yummy!"
"I have lots of zucchini from my garden so am always looking for zucchini recipes, I made this and it turned out pretty good, now, when I make it, I substitute the ranch dressing and use 1/2 pack of onion soup mix instead, and it is really good."
"I have been making similar fritters for a long time. I squeeze the liquid from the shredded zucchini before adding the other ingredients"
