Zucchini Patties

ZUCCHINI PATTIES_comp

“I tried!  We liked!  I recommend!  From Allrecipes, I adapted these and they are really delish! My husband Bill raved about them!  Zucchini patties with mozzarella cheese and red pepper, they make a great appetizer or a little snack.  I added red pepper to the recipe. You can substitute the red pepper for any other vegetable you like or use just the zucchini.  We like to eat them plain, but you can also serve with a dish of tomato sauce for dipping.  Make them ahead of time and just reheat them in the microwave for a few minutes when ready to serve.  So very easy to make!  Enjoy!”

Makes: about 18.

INGREDIENTS:

2 eggs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups grated zucchini
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup oil, for frying

DIRECTIONS:
1. With your hands, squeeze handfuls of the grated zucchini until no more liquid drains out. Get the zucchini as dry as you can.  Set aside.
2, In a medium bowl beat together the eggs, onion, flour, Romano cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt, and black pepper until well blended.
3. Mix in the zucchini and red pepper.
4. In an electric skillet, heat the oil to 375 degrees or to medium high heat on top of the stove.
5. Use a tablespoon to carefully and slowly drop the zucchini mixture into the oil.  Use another tablespoon to push the batter into the hot oil. Cook the patties on each side for a few minutes until golden. Remove them to a dish lined with paper towels and gently blot the oil off the tops with a paper towel.
6. Serve warm plain, or with tomato sauce for dipping.
