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


  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup tarragon, basil, or parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 pound zucchini, (about 2 medium) stems removed, grated
  • Cooking spray


  • Place the eggs, Parmesan, flour, herbs, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Grate the zucchini and add it to the bowl. Gently stir to combine, 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 and press down with a spatula or fork. 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.
