Zucchini Feta Patties

Zucchini Feta Patties

This is the first time I’ve ever tried zucchini patties (aka fritters) and I’m happy to say I actually loved them! I adapted this recipe from Bon Appetit, and added a few of my own slight changes like adding garlic and lemon, then I topped it with a sauce that’s similar to tzatziki (minus the chunky cucumber). I definitely preferred these hot out of the skillet while the edges were still crisp and the insides were soft. These have such a unique flavor and texture and if you haven’t tried zucchini fritters yet, now is the time! Especially since you are looking for just one more use for your abundance of summer zucchini.
