Using your bounty

WARNING – this is another of several zucchini recipes you’ll be seeing.  I’m one of “those” people who has been bombarded.  And I’m not complaining 🙂

These little treasures are perfect as an appetizer or side dish (especially with some tzatziki, and/or hot sauce).  They’re easy to make, a great way to use up your squash surplus, and best of all…delicious.

Once again, Mario Batali rocks.

Zucchini-Ricotta Fritters
from Food & Wine

2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
3 cloves garlic, grated
2 large eggs
3/4 cup AP flour
extra virgin olive oil, for frying
lemon wedges
salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients together and form into patties.  Put some extra virgin olive oil in a hot skillet and fry away.  Place on paper towel to drain when removing from pan.  Squeeze fresh lemon over patties and serve.

Makes approximately 20 fritters.

    I’ve made zucchini fritters before, but not with ricotta — great idea! Of course, like lots of folks, I’m blessed with zucchini bounty! I’ll be trying this, maybe even today.

    Melissa, I’ve seen every recipe from A to Z (“Z” being for zucchini! 🙂 but this is different and delicious looking! Thanks!

  3. We have had squash coming out our ears for months already. The heat has finally triumphed over our garden though. I have two adorable one-ball and eight-ball zucchini left to cook tomorrow and then that will be it for me.

    I’m really enjoying your blog tonight. I’m glad you stopped by mine so that I could come see yours. Have a great night!
