  1. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil, and place the potato into the water. Boil until tender, about 20 minutes; remove and let cool. When cool enough to handle, finely dice.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the cooked potato, zucchini, egg, onion, mint leaves, feta cheese, and bread crumbs to make a mixture that holds together when pressed lightly.
  3. Place flour into a separate shallow dish. Form the zucchini mixture into small patties, and dredge patties in flour on both sides.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry the zucchini patties until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain the patties on paper towels; serve hot.

I have a personal recipe for zucchini patties and a favorite one from this site. I thought I would try this one for something a little different. Taste wise I would give them at least a 4. Howev...

Nice flavour, just a bit on the soft side, added some extra breadcrumbs. Put them in the oven for 5 minutes to crisp up a little, seved on pita with tatziki, lettuce, cucumber and tomato. Finish...

Holy moly these are AWESOME. This will definitely become a family tradition. I recommend one small change-dredge the fritters in panko bread crumbs instead of flour. Serve fritters with tzati...

These were a big hit! The only changes I made was that I baked instead of fried and left out the bread crumbs and instead used a few tablespoons of whole wheat flour to keep them together.

Yummy!!! and super easy! I only added some fresh anethum and parsley! Thank you for posting!

When I put zucchini in a recipe I always squeeze the moisture out thoroughly with a towel. It dries it out and makes it easier to work with

Big Hit! added 2 eggs, 1 cup of fresh bread crumbs instead of dry and could not find mint so used fresh dill instead.

Delicious, but very messy to make so be prepared!
