Easy Zucchini Pancakes (Zucchini Fritters)
These zucchini pancakes (also known as zucchini fritters) are a fun way to use up zucchini. They are easy to make and tasty too!
Servings: 12 fritters
- 3 cups grated zucchini
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1/4 cup minced white onion
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil divided use
In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, onion, flour, mozzarella cheese, cayenne pepper, basil, garlic, and salt. Stir well enough to distribute ingredients evenly.
Get a large heavy skillet heating over medium-high heat. Pour in about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into the pan to coat.
Working 3 or 4 at a time, drop heaping spoonfuls of the zucchini mixture into the hot oil in the pan. Press down on it a little to flatten slightly.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
*Great served with a little marinara sauce or sour cream.
**Can be served on a bun or roll as a sandwich/slider.
