Easy Zucchini Fritters Recipe

This is such an easy way to serve zucchini up to the kids and the whole batch is ready in under 30 minutes.

Ingredients:  – Zucchini or yellow summer squash – Flour – Shredded cheese  – Egg – Salt (optional) – Cumin (optional)

1

Grate your zucchini on a box grater. I like to grate mine into a clean kitchen towel in order to remove the moisture.

2

Spread onto a clean kitchen towel and roll up to absorb the excess moisture. Unroll and measure. This will help ensure the fritters bake through nicely.

3

Spread the grated zucchini on a clean dish towel. Let sit while the oven preheats to 400 degrees F. Grease 6 cups of a muffin tin.

4

Place the zucchini in a medium bowl then add the rest of the ingredients to the zucchini. Stir well to combine.

5

You can add a pinch of cayenne pepper for a hint of spice. Or add snipped parsley and 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan for Italian flavor.

6

Once everything is mixed well, fill prepared muffin cups about half full, packing each one tightly.

7

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the edges and tops are lightly golden brown. Let cool for 2 minutes and remove from cups.

8

Serve warm with ketchup or salsa for dipping, if desired. Cut them into smaller pieces as needed for your toddler.

9

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. Warm for about 15 seconds in the microwave to serve.
