Zucchini Patties

Posted on June 17, 2013
Hi, Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend and are enjoying the beginning of the summer! It’s been a crazy one here so far, with a tornado warning last week and heavy rain most nights, I’m hoping this isn’t what the rest of the summer is going to be like! I’m ready for some warm, no-clouds-in-the-sky beach days! I have another quick and easy summer recipe to share with you today – Zucchini Patties! This is definitely my favorite way to use fresh zucchini, you only need a couple of ingredients and these are so quick and easy to whip up for a delicious appetizer or side dish.
*Makes 6*
2 cups grated zucchini (one medium sized zucchini)
1/2 small onion, finely diced
1 large egg
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and Pepper
Olive oil
*You could add garlic or herbs for some extra flavor
1. To make these zucchini patties, grate the zucchini, then pat it dry with some paper towels (try to get as much of the moisture out as possible, without mushing up the zucchini). Place all the grated zucchini in a bowl, and add in the finely diced onion, Parmesan cheese (you can add in whatever cheese you like), the egg and flour and stir well. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and using a 1/4 cup measure, drop the zucchini batter into your pan, patting it down a little with a spatula. Cook on medium heat for about 2 – 3 minutes on each side, or until you get a nice, golden brown crust on the outside and the patties have cooked on the inside. Let cool for a couple of minutes before eating.
Have a great Monday, Everyone!

    Awesome! I love making veggies into patties. They get transformed into something that doesn’t exactly taste healthy…

    Crossing my fingers over here for beautiful summer day too!

    I need to try these! I can always use a new, yummy zucchini recipe:)

  • wendylouwho August 18, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Very nice! I did some poking around on the internet to see which herbs were frequently used with zucchini, and wound up adding in some fresh parsley. These were easy to make and held together nicely when cooking. Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe, I love squash, but I prepare zucchini more frequent, these look so yummy, I know I’ll be making them Tuesday as a side dish.

  • Maxine Foreman June 30, 2017 at 3:27 am

    Delicious looking recipe, I’m going to give it a go when my courgettes come into harvest. Do you think they would freeze if I make double? Thanks Max ?

    • ahomemadeliving June 30, 2017 at 7:29 pm

      Hi Max! I’m not sure that these would freeze well, I worry that they would get a little soggy if frozen… but you could always try to freeze a couple and see if it works! Hope they turn out great! Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend!

    Looks delicious but I’m wondering if I can bake these instead. Has anyone tried it? If not, I’ll let you know how it works.

    • ahomemadeliving July 23, 2020 at 11:09 pm

      Hi Maria, I’ve never baked these, but let me know if it works! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    These were quite tasty. I followed the recipe and also took the suggestion at the bottom and added garlic and some herbs (basil & dill). Also gently crisped under a low broil. Yum!

  • Peggy April 25, 2021 at 4:59 pm

    Wondering where I went wrong. The cakes were tasty but didn’t stay together very well. I followed the recipe exactly. It wasn’t like pancake batter, much more crumbly and dry. Appreciate your input and/or recommendations. I’d like to keep this one on my rotation. 😉
