Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters
This is a big go-to for us when we have lots of summer squash around. It uses a good amount of squash, it cooks easy, and you can dress them up as much as you want i.e. bacon & sour cream.

Prepare these using any combination of zucchini, large pattypan squashes, carrots, beets, kale, cabbage, onion, garlic… anything that can be greated or chopped fine. Here is a starter recipe:

Ingredients:
1 large zucchini or pattypan, grated
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 egg
3 Tbsp. flour

Method:
Grate squash and salt it. Let it sit for about 30 minutes and then drain and squeeze out the moisture. Toss the squash with the remaining ingredients. At this point, you may wish to add other grated veggies. Add more or less flour and egg to get the right consistency. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil over medium heat and fry the fritters/latkes until golden brown. These cook much quicker than potato pancakes. Serve with sour cream.
