Neat. This is the first time I've heard of using zucchini this way.
Those sound good. I'm going to give them a try.

I just made this recipe and took a picture. Before posting in a new thread, I did a search to see if it had been posted before.

I found this thread and I saw one from LuckyTrim called "Zucchini Pancakes" that looks almost exactly the same. And then there is a post by Mr. Greenjeans called "Mock Zucchini Crab Cakes" which uses Old Bay seasoning. I'm going to try that!

I used one medium zuke for this and it made exactly 12. Pretty good, but you'd never know there was shredded mozzarella in there. When I heat them up in the toaster oven, I will top each with a clump of cheese to melt. And sprinkle with smoked paprika.

Zucchini Patties



• 2 cups grated zucchini

• 2 eggs, beaten

• ¼ cup chopped onion

• ½ cup all-purpose flour

• ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

• ½ cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

• salt, pepper and Italian seasoning to taste (or Old Bay!)

• 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil



  • In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, onion, flour, Parmesan cheese, Mozzarella cheese, and salt. Stir well enough to distribute ingredients evenly.
2. Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Drop zucchini mixture by heaping Tablespoonfuls and then flatten down with a spatula to form a patty shape and cook for a few minutes on each side until golden.

The reheated zucchini patties with mozzarella and smoked paprika were delicious! My friend, Kathy, LOVED them! We had them with BLT's last night.

This morning, I sliced a farmer's market tomato, topped the patties, and put mozzarella on one, Mexican blend on the other. I loved both of these even more! Added to my breakfast.

Gonna make more patties!
