I've added a little pizzazz to the average zucchini patties giving them more personality and zing! Dip them in your favorite dipping sauce or make my Spicy Garlic Mayo Dipping Sauce for a down home New Orleans flavor that can't be beat. Ah, C'est ci bon!

TIPS:
With an electric griddle you can make 6+ at a time.

Patties freeze well. Cook & cool completely, stack patties with a piece of wax paper in between, then place in ziploc bag & freeze.

To thaw place in microwave for 1 minute or until heated through. These are very good with either a fried or poached egg on top as the main course for breakfast.
