Zucchini

Actually, it’s just one of my seed zucchinis from which I’ll save seeds for next year’s crop.

I’ve shared two of my favorite zucchini recipes here.

This is another family favorite.

ZUCCHINI FRITTERS

3 c. coarsely grated zucchini
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp. flour
1 tbs minced garlic
Salt and black pepper, freshly ground
Olive oil for pan frying
Grate the squash and squeeze out excess water. Mix dry ingredients and toss with zucchini. Whisk eggs and incorporate into mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste. Batter should be moist but not runny.
Pan fry in small fritters in a bit of olive oil. Cook just until golden brown. These can be kept warm in the oven for a bit before dinner. Be sure to cover. Serves 6.
