Zucchini Fritters

Zuchini Fritters

2 cups shredded zucchini
1 medium onion
1 egg, slightly beaten
5 T dried breadcrumbs
salt and pepper to taste
2 - 3 T flour
vegetable oil

Shred zucchini coarsely; drain in a colander. Grate onion coarsely. Combine all ingredients except oil. Use only enough flour to hold the mixture together.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Drop fritter mixture, a tablespoon at a time, into the hot oil. Flatten with back of a spoon. Cook over medium heat until crisp brown; turn and brown on the other side. Drain on a rack over paper towels. Sprinkle with salt while still warm.

Makes 4 servings.


These are a great side-dish for pork or lamb. They have a surprising spiciness to them. Reheat leftovers under the broiler for a couple minutes on each side.
