I’ve mentioned before that my family is Italian. So, obviously that means that my Grandma is a treasure trove of delicious recipes.
One of my favorite Grandma Rosie Specialties is her Zucchini Patties. They are so good with a big plate of spaghetti and meatballs.
A few weeks ago, I opened up my e mail to a wonderful surprise. My Aunt Terry sent me the recipe out-of-the-blue so that I could give them a shot and blog about them! They turned out perfect– just as good as Grandma Rosie’s!
If you wanted, you could dip these in marinara sauce, but I like to munch on them plain. They have plenty of flavor on their own and make great a finger food or appetizer.
Grandma Rosie’s Zuchinni Patties
Step 1: In a large bowl, combine 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp dried parsley, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, and 3/4 cups flour.
Step 2: Shred 1 large zuchinni and combine with dry ingredients.
Step 3: Crack 1 large egg into the zuchinni mixture and combine until you get a batter.
Step 4: Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of the zuchinni batter into the pan and cook on each side until browned and slightly crispy.
Step 5: Lay patties on a paper towl to drain any excess oil. Sprinkle with more grated parmesan before serving.
