Zucchini Fritters Recipe

Zucchini Fritters Recipe

Meet the Cook: One day, I wanted to serve zucchini as a side dish - but I didn't have the time to slice and deep-fry it. So I came up with these fritters instead! They go especially well with barbecued ribs or pork chops and corn on the cob. I'm an avid recipe clipper. I've also assisted at our church's Wednesday night suppers, cooking for as many as 125 people. That was good "training" - my husband and I have three children...and they're now 20, 19 and 18! -Mary Dixson, Catlin, Illinois
