I agree, you have to really strain out the liquid in the zucchini first. My kids who hate zucchini LOVED these. These are really easy to play with ingredients-add a little parmesan or a little more garlic, its up to you!. I love the idea of baking on a cookie sheet with olive oil, too. I tried both methods (i have made these twice now) and both turn out really well. Sour cream dip goes so well with it.

Messy to make, but oh, so good. I have tried scooping and patting out portions on a cookie sheet, then partially pre-baking them before frying them. That way they are easier and less messy to form.

Delicious! I grated my carrot with the zucchini. I made one in the frying pan before making all of them so I could taste if it needed a little more seasoning or not. Not sure what one of the reviewers is talking about with them falling apart, they obviously didn't let the zucchini drain or they dont know how to cook. Squeeze out all the water next time.

These were delicious. I too only ended up with 18. Even my 4 year old liked them. Yummers!

Absolutely fantastic! I followed the recipe as directed, but only wound up with 15 patties. Guess I made them too big, but no one was complaining. :) The dill dip is the perfect accompaniment.

I make these at least once a summer. The dill dip is the perfect accompaniment.

This recipe was terrible! I made it exactly as directed but the patties would not hold together, so I had to add more bread crumbs and egg. They tasted like fried bread crumbs in the end.

We had these at our annual knitting retreat; all 13 people there requested the recipe. It is fantabulous.

Loved this with the seafood seasoning. Shredded the carrots and onion. Made sure I drained everything really well before forming the patties and they were very delicious.
