1 large zucchini, finely chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 eggs, beaten
½ C freshly grated Romano cheese
2 C all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
chopped fresh parsley (optional)
¼ C vegetable shortening or oil
1In a large bowl, mix together the zucchini, onion, garlic, eggs, Romano cheese, and flour. Season with salt, pepper, and parsley.
2 Heat about 1 tablespoon of shortening/oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of the batter into the skillet, and flatten slightly with the back of a spatula.
3 Turn fritters over when the center appears dry. Cook on the other side until golden brown.
4 Set aside and keep warm.
5 Add more shortening to skillet as needed, and continue with remaining batter.
