Zucchini Cakes

 I found this on All They taste great and we all have lots of zucchini this time of year. It  good with sour cream and chives on top too.

Makes: 8 cakes

  • 1 large zucchini grated, excess water removed (Note: To do this, after you grate the zucchini, put the grated zucchini into paper towels and squeeze to release the water)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • sprinkle of ground nutmeg, about 1/8 teaspoon (Note: If you add too much it can quickly take over the taste, less is more) I did just a dash.
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Combine all ingredients, except olive oil, in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Using a heaping tablespoon form the mixture into 8 patties.
  2. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Once heated, add patties and cook until golden brown. About 3-4 minutes per side. Serve.
  You can also top with ranch.Enjoy


  1. Ahh, good! I've got some monster zucchini on the way. I'll remember this.

  2. I have got to make these they look so delicious.

  3. Looks as good as yellow squash patties. Yum.
