These Zucchini Fritters are unbelievably easy to make, and the perfect way to sneak in some veggies! They make a great appetizer . Which is one of my new ways to serve these during football season!
Zucchini Fritters have been a family favorite for years and are a staple in our home all year long. We love the how easy they are to make and that zucchini is available all year long not just in the summer months. Although the garden is overflowing with zucchini in the summer so these are in the fridge almost every day. They are excellent for breakfast, brunch or lunch. I really love these for breakfast with eggs.
Reminiscent of potato latkes, these zucchini fritters are paired sour cream and chopped scallions.
The trick to making this zucchini fritter is making sure you squeeze out as much of the water from the zucchini as possible. So grate the zucchini and place it in a dish towel or cheese clothe and squeeze well.
