Baked Zucchini Fritters

Baked Zucchini Fritters

Happy Labor Day!  I hope you are all having a fun and safe holiday weekend.  Did you get a chance to work out in your garden?  I didn’t, mostly because I don’t have a garden…but my neighbors did some work in their garden, and I got to reap some of their hard work rewards.  They brought me over three large zucchinis and a bunch of tomatoes.  I have the best neighbors ever!  I love getting fresh produce – you can’t beat a garden tomato, they are so dang tasty.  The zucchini also gave me a chance to do some experimenting in the kitchen, which is super fun for me (I know I am weird).  

I have already made multiple batches of my Blueberry Zucchini Bread, so I was thinking I wanted to make something savory with my next zucchini.  Which is exactly what these Baked Zucchini Fritters are…a savory fritter made with simple wholesome ingredients, and they are oh-so-good!

They were so yummy in fact, that I ate some of the leftovers cold.  I was a little bit snacky one afternoon, so I looked in the refrigerator, saw the fritters and heard them calling my name, and I had to partake immediately – as in while I was standing in the doorway of the fridge.  Which totally goes against my advice about How to Avoid the Trap of Mindless Snacking – but they were calling my name, and they tasted so good, even when they were cold.  Plus they are jam packed with shredded zucchini, so I figured it was better than eating handfuls of dark chocolate chips while browsing through the cupboards to find something to satisfy my snacking needs – not that I have ever done that :).

Anyways, these fritters are super simple to make, and will use up your zucchini in a hurry (one batch call for an entire large zucchini) – which if you have zucchini coming out of your ears, that is probably a good thing!

  1. I made these recently but didn’t have one large zucchini so I shredded 3 smaller ones and doubled the cheese and egg mixture, mixed it all together and got 6 4 inch pancakes. I loved them! Next time I’ll probably add more seasoned salt from Beautifully Briny Sea. I topped with sour cream and served them w/ an arugula side salad. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I dislike goat cheese. I will try with Ricotta Cheese or Parmesan Cheese or Low-Calorie White Cheese.

  3. I made these yesterday, they were delicious! I added a mango and lemon dressing which really complimented the dish. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. I just made these and really enjoyed them. I added a bit of dried dill to half of the batch and that was really good with the garlic and onion flavours. I would use a little less salt next time though.

  10. When you say goat cheese, what kind do you mean? I am not used to using goat cheese and am not sure what kind to buy. Thanks – Mae
