  • 1 medium zucchini grated
  • 3 tbsp onion finely grated
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2-3 tbsp butter for frying
  • 1/4 c parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill or other fresh herbs, optional

desired toppings:

  • cheese
  • sour cream
  • green onion etc.


  • Grate zucchini into large bowl (I use a medium grater). Squeeze excess water out of zucchini (this should be about 1 cup). Stir in onion, egg, flour, baking powder, salt, cheese and any herbs until combined.
  • Over medium to medium high heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet. Drop batter by the tablespoonful into hot pan, flattening out to be 3-4 inches in diameter, 1/4-1/8 inch thick.
  • Cook 1 minute until bottoms are deep brown and flip. Gently press. Cook 30 more seconds, remove to plate and sprinkle with salt. Melt more butter into hot pan and repeat until no more batter remains. Serve fritters warm with desired toppings.
