Crispy, Delicious Zucchini Fritter Recipe

Zucchini Fritter Recipe

Got zucchini? Me, too. We make zucchini bread, zucchini relish, stuffed zucchini and hot zucchini jam, to name a few. My favorite by far is fried zucchini fritters. Simple and delicious; that’s all you need in a recipe!


2 cups grated zucchini
2 eggs
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup bread crumbs
olive oil

Ready for the easy part?

  1. Grate the zucchini.
  2. Beat the eggs.
  3. Mix everything except the olive oil together in a bowl.
  4. Let sit for about 20 minutes.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a pan.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, flatten it with a fork.
  7. Fry it until brown on both sides.
  8. Drain on a paper towel.

I find that if I fry them on lower heat, they cook more thoroughly through the middle. It takes a few test pieces to get it to the crispness that you like, but it is well worth it!

    Those fritters look SO good. I love zucchini anything. Mostly I make our zucchini into a delicious quick bread, or simply saute it with some herbs and extra virgin olive oil.

    I am definitely trying your recipe. It’s going to be pinned ASAP. :)

    Made these today for dinner. I love the idea of adding cracker crumbs and less flour. They turned out crispy and not doughy at all. I did add a shredded carrot and about 2 tbls. of finely chopped onion to give it a little more flavor. But the basic recipe is great!
