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

"All I can say is yum! These are wonderful, and a very inventive way to use extra zucchini! I've also subbed coconut flour, about half the amount and made a gluten free version!"

"They are very good!! Added salt to taste on top. They really sucked up the oil, though. I might try half the flour and use Panko bread crumbs for the other half!! Also I would add some parmesan cheese!!! Good recipe for all the zucchini right now!!! Thanks!"

"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."

"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"

"For the last two months, I have been cooking, baking, stir frying, grilling zucchini in hopes of not burning out my husband with our over abundance of zucchini. This recipe was a quick favorite! I even cooked it up for my mother who HATES squash! And she loved it! I will be cooking this summer after summer!!"

"THE ONLY THING DIFFERENT I DID WAS ADD A HALF A PACKET OF LIPTON ONION MUSHROOM SOUP MIX, BECAUSE THAT'S ALL I HAD. HOPING IT WOULD TURN OUT GOOD, AS I MADE THE WHOLE BATCH. WELL IT WAS! MY KIDS AND THEIR FRIENDS LOVED IT. THEY DEMANDED I MAKE MORE. NEXT TIME I WILL DOUBLE THE BATCH AND TRY THE RANCH. THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE IT WAS MADE OUT OF ZUCCHINI!"

"We had 9 zucchinis out of the garden yesterday so I was browsing to find different things to make with them. I tried this recipe and my picky non-vegetable eating teens devoured them. Only after they were done did I tell them it was zucchini! This recipe gets high praise from them as well as my husband and I! Thanks for sharing!"
