Zucchini Parmesan Fritters: A Quick and Easy Recipe

Updated on February 2, 2018
3.8 stars from 28 ratings of Zuchinni Parmesan Fritters

This has been my favorite snack lately. Zucchini are abundant in the garden, and this recipe comes together so easily. Not to mention it tastes great! My three-year-old even loves them. They can be eaten plain or with any kind of dipping sauce you like. Eat them as a snack, breakfast, or even as a side for lunch or dinner!

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 30 Fritters

Ingredients

  • 2 Zucchini, or about 3 cups shredded
  • 2/3 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • pinch Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil for frying

Instructions

  1. Line a small bowl with paper towels. Wash and dry the zucchini. Grate into bowl and set aside. The paper towel will absorb some of the liquid so the batter isn't too runny later on.
  2. In a medium to large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, italian seasoning, chili powder, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Create a well in the center.
  3. In a small bowl beat eggs with the milk. Add to the well in the flour mixture and gradually incorporate all the flour into the egg mixture. You should have a thick batter.
  4. Add the zucchini to the batter and mix well.
  5. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Use a measuring tablespoon to add the batter to the pan. Use the side or back of the spoon to gently flatten batter. Fill pan with fritters so they aren't touching.
  6. Cook on each side for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Continue until all the batter is used up. Serve hot. If needed keep warm in a low heated oven.

        Thank you so much Sgbrown ^_^ I too always have way too many zucchini! Of course I don't mind you sharing this on your blog. It would be helpful if you attached the link where you list your blog in you profile... I'm having a really hard time finding it for some reason. ^_^ Thanks again!

        This sounds awesome! I always have so much zucchini in my garden I don't know what to do with it all. It doesn't freeze well, so I end up giving so much of it away. I think we would love these zucchini fritters! Your step by step instructions are great. These are definitely a must try! I would like to share this recipe on my "Around the World with Recipes" blog if that is all right with you! Let me know... Voting up and pinning too! :)

        Been meaning to get back over here and let you know I tried this recipe - only modified with GF flours and it was very good. A lot healthier than the deep frying in beer batter we have done before. I like the texture of these and they are so simple and the kids gobbled them up too. We used a mix of coc oil and olive oil in the pan - great flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe :) Voted and shared.

        I'm going to make these this week! My husband won't even know what he's eating. : ) Peruvians make something very similar, though without the parmesan. They often serve them with ceviche. I hadn't thought to use grated zucchini. It's super practical for all the gardeners out there who have zucchini coming out their ears! I love your fritter page dividers, btw. Voted up and shared.
