Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini FrittersAt the end of the summer, Granny always had plenty of zucchini hanging on the vines in her garden.

She would serve these fritters hot, but I like to prepare them ahead and offer them room temperature for a late morning brunch buffet.

Zucchini Fritters

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated reduced-fat Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup tarragon, chopped (optional)
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp nutmeg (I love nutmeg so I add 1/4)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 pound zucchini, (about 2 medium) stems removed, grated
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  • Combine the eggs, Parmesan, flour, parsley, baking powder, tarragon (if using), nutmeg, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk to form a batter, removing large lumps, about 1 minute. Grate the zucchini and add it to the bowl. The moisture from the zucchini will produce a thick batter as you stir. Use the batter immediately.
  • Coat a large skillet with the cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Using a 1/4-cup measure, pour out 4 mounds of batter. Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Spray the tops of the fritters then flip. Cook another 2 minutes until firm then transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining cooking spray and batter. Serve immediately.
