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 cup 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 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Press excess moisture out of grated zucchini between paper towels. Combine everything but the butter to make the batter; mix to blend thoroughly.

  3. Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet or saute pan.

  4. When the butter is hot and foaming, spoon batter (about 2 heaping tablespoons per patty) into skillet. Flatten lightly with a spatula. 

  5. Cook over medium heat until nicely browned on both sides. Serve plain or top with tomato sauce and grated cheese. 

  6. Serve and enjoy!
