Mom’s Zucchini Fritters
Yields 10-12, depending on size
3 cups shredded raw zucchini or summer squash (1 medium zucchini is usually plenty)
¼ cup chopped spring onion (use the whole thing!)
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ cup all purpose flour
2 T melted butter
¼ cup grated cheese (we like cheddar, anything will be great!)
freshly cracked black pepper
oil or butter for sautéing
Combine the zucchini, onion, salt and flour in a medium bowl and mix well.
Add the eggs, butter, cheese and black pepper. Mix well. Batter will be on the thin side.
Heat a saute pan over medium high heat and add a film of oil or butter.
Place spoonfuls in the pan, and allow to become golden brown before flipping and cooking to golden brown on the other side. (This process is much like making pancakes)
