Crispy zucchini fritters are a simple recipe to use zucchini in a pan-fried fritter that even people who aren't vegetable lovers will eat. Put some ranch on the side to dip these zucchini fritters in and everyone will love this finger food. By the time August rolls around, we are in the heart of the zucchini season. While I love my fabulous zucchini brownies, I love making these crispy zucchini fritters too.
How to Make Zucchini Fritters
We stirred in the zucchini and ½ cup of flour.
And then we went off the recipe. Yep, that is grated Parmesan cheese. I dumped about ½ cup into the mixture.
Then add some EVOO to a skillet and warm up and spoon the mixture into the pan. Let fry on each side for about 2 minutes.
I then, of course, garnished with more Parmesan cheese. The kids and hubs dipped the fritters into ranch dressing. But they dip everything in ranch dressing, so I am not sure it was necessary.
