Fried Zucchini Cakes
These were simply delicious and another family favourite.
3 zucchini squash grated
2 tbsp. milk
1 c. dry bread crumbs
Oil for frying
1/2 c. mozzarella cheese shredded
3 tbsps Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper
Grate zucchini. Place in a colander and drain. After a few minutes, turn zucchini onto a clean dish cloth. Raise the four corners and squish and squeeze until no more water runs through the cloth.
Put into a bowl and add remaining ingredients. Shape into palm size cakes. Fry until golden brown. Best eaten warm but also delicious at room temperature. A good summer recipe.
Can be served with slices of fresh lemon or dip in garlic mayonaisse.
