This is super easy to multiply for a larger batch. Each cup of zucchini makes 1 large or 2 small fritters to serve one person. I usually grate up a medium to large zucchini, measure to see how many cups I have, and then adjust the recipe to use the entire squash.

  • 1 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1 Tbsp diced onion
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 – 3 Tbs bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • Seasoning to taste (I used adobo seasoning, but I also like Italian seasoning)
  • Oil for frying (I used bacon grease)

Combine shredded zucchini, onion, egg, bread crumbs and seasoning in a bowl. Spoon batter into hot, greased skillet and flatten slightly with back of spoon.

Fry until golden, then flip. Brown on both sides and cooke until egg is set in center. Serve hot or cold.

Seasoning Tips

For a savory fritter, use a sprinkle of Italian seasoning, adobo seasoning, salt and pepper, or try chili powder for some heat.

For a sweet fritter, use cinnamon or nutmeg.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Top savory fritter with shredded cheese and allow to melt
  • Serve with sour cream, yogurt, or cottage cheese
  • Top sweet fritter with cream cheese, maple syrup, honey, or vanilla sugar
  • Make a sandwich with mulitgrain bread and mustard, ketchup, or hot sauce

Freeze Some For Later

Chill cooked fritters in refrigerator. Place in freezer bags or vacuum seal them. Mark with date and freeze. Thaw and use within 3 to 6 months.

How to Use Up Your Zucchinis

I planted 5 zucchini plants this spring even though 2 or 3 would have been plenty. Some years the squash vine borers do so much damage that I don’t get as many squash as I want. This year a woodchuck munched on the leaves and set the plants back a week or so. But they recovered and once again I am harvesting more zucchini than we need (or want).

I’ve found ways to use the extras…stir fried, in place of noodles, in bread and muffins, even pancakes! This zucchini fritter recipe is another tasty way to eat your zucchini!

      Very happy to share, Eric! I’ve tried this recipe now with bread crumbs, corn meal, and crushed up tortilla chips (trying to use up odds and ends around the kitchen)…I think I like the bread crumbs best.

      I also want to try some of the other recipes you shared…I just need 25 hours in a day to get it all done. LOL!
