Zucchini Patties

These cheesy zucchini patties are an excellent way to use up that abundance of zucchini from the garden. Serve with a bit of tomato sauce or sour cream dabbed on top. Zucchini Patties, one of the best ways to use up summer Zucchini, fast and easy, onions, parmesan and spices make these so deliciously tasty, the perfect appetizer or side dish.

I wouldn’t say that I’m a budget shopper, as there are some serious penny-pinching gurus who can make full meals for some crazy small amount like $2.

But, my grocery trips do revolve around what’s on sale. Sometimes I’ll go in with a list, but most of the time what I walk out the door with is totally dependent on what’s on sale.

I’m always looking for new ways to use up my lingering zucchini. I’ve made zucchini crisps and zucchini sticks but I wanted to try something a little different this time – something “not fried” per se and a bit healthier. That’s when these fritters happened.
