It has been such a wonderful long weekend and today is the last day of it. It always makes me sad when a long weekend or vacation ends, but hey that’s life. The weather has been wonderful and it was a very relaxing weekend for me.
I did not do a lot of cooking this weekend, but I did make these potato and zucchini fritters. I love fritters of any kind, the only thing I’m not crazy about is the fact that I have to fry them. I have never tried to bake fritters before, but I think I will try it next time. The key here is to really squeeze as much water from your zucchini as possible.
These fritters were amazing. They were being eaten as I was frying them, and I was beginning to wonder if there would be any left over when I was done frying.
There were some left over and that was probably because this recipe makes quite a few fritters, but boy are they good. And they make such a great snack too. As a matter of fact we were sitting and watching Bones on TV and snacking on these fritters. You may think you might need a dip for them but you don’t really have to. We did eat them with some salsa though. I did add some Frank’s hot sauce to these fritters and let me tell you I love this hot sauce, and just like the commercial says I do put that ^&*! on everything.
I have another version of zucchini patties but between these two recipes, I can’t decide which is my favorite, though I’m leaning towards the potato version, well just because it has potatoes in it.
