Zucchini Patties

This is a great snack or can make a nice side dish. I severed the zucchini patties with fresh tilapia fillets!


  • 1 cup grated raw green zucchini
  • 1 cup grated raw, yellow zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons minced onion
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Italian bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1tablespoon butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tablespoon basil
  • ** Feel free to add garlic or more of your favorite  herbs.



  • Press excess moisture out of grated zucchini between paper towels.

  • Mix together everything but butter to make the batter. Melt butter in skillet.

  • Spoon batter (about 2 heaping tablespoons per patty) into skillet. Flatten lightly with spatula.

  • Cook over medium heat until nicely browned on both sides.

  • Serve plain or top with tomato sauce and grated cheese.

** If you find the inside too moist put in the over @350 for 10 minutes.
