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

Step-by-Step

  • 1Line a colander with paper towels and press the zucchini to squeeze out as much water as possible
  • 2In medium bowl combine the zucchini, onion, flour, cheese, salt and pepper, stir well to distribute evenly. Add beaten eggs and mix well.
  • 3Option 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.
  • 4Option 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.
  • 5Serve with your favorite dipping sauce: Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce, Honey Mustard, etc. My Favorite is Spicy Garlic Mayo
  • 6TIPS:
    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.
