Directions

  1. Squeeze grated zucchini in paper towels to release as much water as possible. Spread zucchini on fresh paper towels and sprinkle with salt; let sit for 30 minutes to release additional water; squeeze again.
  2. Mix Parmesan cheese, eggs, green onions, garlic, basil, nutmeg, onion powder, and black pepper in a bowl; add zucchini. Stir to combine.
  3. Heat butter and olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Form golf ball-sized zucchini patties and place in hot frying pan. Fry until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

I love courgette fritters (I'm British). I let my courgette drain in a colander or even a sieve for up to an hour then just squeeze excess water out with my hands. It's such an easy recipe and tastes delicious plus they're very filling when you're hungry. I also like to experiment with herbs and spices and this is good with chopped green or red chilli; fresh chives; mint and parsley.

I'm low-carbin' it and thought I'd try these for a different breakfast. They are deliciously savory. I put the zucchini in a thin cotton towel in the colander, salt it and then wring out the liquid. I added extra parmesan and used minced red onions. FABULOUS!! I'll be making these again.

YUM YUM!!! I was so worried these wouldn't hold because there was no way of making these into patties by hand. They were to goopy. Anyway so I just spooned it into the pan shaped it as well as a I could and hoped it would hold. They flipped beautifully! Tasted good too! Thanks!
