Zucchini Fritters


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.
