frittersThese are awesome. And a great way to use up any zucchini overload from the garden.

As I fried these the girls got more and more excited, hovering over the pan.

“Back up or you might get oil on your face”

They would back up but as the fritters came out of the pan over and over their little fingers woudl sneak up on to the plate.

“Can I have this one, mommy?  Ouch.. it’s hot”.

Lol, it’s funny when kids love something so much that has veggies in it.  Sure they are fried, but it’s only about a teaspoon per batch.

We ate them plain and with my homemade ranch dressing, both where awesome.

As a note, I highly recommend using a Salad Shooter to grate your veggies.  I LOVE mine and it is one of the kitchen appliances I will not be with out (in fact I have a back up one in the box in my garage).

Make sure you also check out my very popular, Salt and Pepper Zucchini chips too, they are a big hit!

    Where does the apple cider vinegar come into play? I see it in the ingredients list but the directions don’t end up calling for it.
