Happy Friday! This recipe comes from my friend Laura!
I lived with Laura for 3 years in Boston and I think she made these at least 40 times. She may or may not have a slight thing for zucchinis and all things summer squash. 😉 I don’t remember these being that labor intensive, but they took me FOREVER. I guess I’m not a good fritter fryer!
It’s ok though, I gave it my best and came out about 93% successful. (The first two fritters I put in the pan were serious fails… I’m glad I didn’t give up right away!)
Zucchini Feta Fritters
- 2 medium-large zucchinis
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 1 (4 oz) package feta
- salt & pepper, to taste
- olive oil
Shred the zucchinis with a grater.
Use paper towels to soak up some of the excess liquid.
Combine all ingredients (except oil) in a bowl.
Coat the bottom of a large skillet with a thin layer of oil over medium heat. Form thin patties out of zucchini mix and carefully place them in the pan. Fry until browned on one side.
Flip and continue frying until browned on that side.
Drain fritters on a paper towel covered plate. Then eat them up!
These were kind of a lot of work. I needed a bigger pan! If you had one of those double burner pancake griddles, you’d be golden. But if not, expect it to take a little while. They were quite yummy, though!
I plan to reheat these in toaster oven for lunch today… Yum!
