Zucchini Patties.

Run. Don't walk. Where? To your garden or a farmers market or even your neightbors garden. Get yourself some zucchini. Seriously. Stop reading. Go now.

Are you back? Did you get a medium sized zucchini? Great! Now try this amazing recipe that I have been waiting to make for over a month now. In fact, I took two small zucchini from my garden because I couldn't wait any longer. And, let me tell you, I am glad I stopped waiting!

Zucchini Patties
(adapted from Gooseberry Patch)
1 medium zucchini, grated (about 3.5 cups)
1 small onion, grated
2 tablespoons parsley
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, gratedf
2 slices of bread, torn into small pieces
1 teaspoon season salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs, beaten
dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup butter, melted

Remove as much liquid from zucchini as possible. Combine zucchini, onion, parsley, cheese, bread, salt, pepper, and eggs. Press into patties; cover each side with dry bread crumbs. Place onto baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Drizzle the patties with butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes - flipping half way through. Patties are done when they turn golden.

Did you make them yet? Aren't you glad you went to the neighbor's garden and took a zucchini? Maybe you should take them this recipe to make up for it. Hopefully they still have some zucchini left!!

I am definitely making these for the dinner group next week, but I was just wondering... what are your suggestions of what I should serve WITH them?

You could serve this as a main item. I served them with green beans, a salad, and chicken patties (because my man likes his meat). Seriously though, they would be fine as the main course.

I had them as a main course last night and served them with a salad and corn on the cob. They are plenty delicious and filling!

Holly, how many patties did the recipe make for you, I got 5.

Thanks for sharing all these yummy dishes gals, I LOVE THEM!
