Kicked Up Zucchini Patties

Donna Graffagnino


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!

How to Make Kicked Up Zucchini Patties


  1. Line a colander with paper towels and press the zucchini to squeeze out as much water as possible
  2. In medium bowl combine the zucchini, onion, flour, cheese, salt and pepper, stir well to distribute evenly. Add beaten eggs and mix well.
  3. Option 1:
    Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drop zucchini mixture by heaping tablespoons, spread out to make nice round thin patties and cook a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
  4. Option 2:
    Preheat oven to 400* F. Spray a baking pan with Pam or non-stick cooking spray and drop zucchini mixture by heaping tablespoons, spread out to make nice round thin patties and bake for 10-15 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  5. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce: Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce, Honey Mustard, etc. My Favorite is Spicy Garlic Mayo
  6. 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.

    Mix all ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.
