Recipe Ingredients for Baked Zucchini Fritters

3 c. shredded zucchini, unpeeled
1 tbsp fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp thyme
1 tbsp dill
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 c. bread crumbs
1 onion
2 tbsp garlic
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 c. grated parmesan
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Recipe Directions for Baked Zucchini Fritters

  1. Preheat oven 425 F

  2. Shred zucchini with food processor or box grater. Wrap shredded zucchini in a piece of cheese cloth or a dark colored dish towel and squeeze out as much water from the zucchini as you can. In a bowl, mix zucchini and remaining ingredients together. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  3. Scoop a spoon full of the mixture into your palm. Create a patty (fritter) with your hands and drizzle one side with olive oil. Place the zucchini fritter, olive oil side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mixture. Once all the fritters have been placed on the baking sheet, drizzle tops with olive oil and bake for 15 minutes. Turn fritters over with a spatula. Cook for additional 10 minutes, or until crisp and golden brown. Top with your favorite marinara or apple butter.
