These easy zucchini patties or fritters are flavored with Parmesan cheese and herbs. A small amount of mayonnaise goes into the batter as well. The batter is a snap to prepare, and they are cooked like pancakes. Serve these zucchini pancakes with some sour cream, salsa, or a savory spread like hummus.
1 1/2 cups grated raw zucchini
2 tablespoons minced onion, or sliced green onions
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, fresh is best
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon oregano
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Press excess moisture out of grated zucchini between paper towels. Combine everything but the butter to make the batter; mix to blend thoroughly.
Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet or sauté pan.
When the butter is hot and foaming, spoon batter (about 2 heaping tablespoons per patty) into skillet. Flatten lightly with a spatula.
Cook over medium heat until nicely browned on both sides. Serve plain or top with tomato sauce and grated cheese.
Serve and enjoy.
