Zucchini Patties

Zucchini Patties - BLW Ideas

These zucchini patties were delicious and super easy to throw together. I don’t like spending a lot of time in the kitchen, chopping and dicing and mincing and grating and mixing and tossing and flipping. You get the idea.

Because these are baby-friendly, they definitely need some salt at the table! There’s a lot of flavor there, and you could add some other herbs in lieu of salt. For mine, I just added it at the table.

First, here’s what you’ll need: oil (for “frying”), shredded cheese (I used just Parmesan, but I would have added mozzarella if I had it), some flour, 1 egg, zucchini, all-purpose seasoning (this one from Trader Joe’s is salt-free), and onion powder (or chopped onion).

Anyway, next you’ll grate the zucchini. You need about 1 cup’s worth.

Dump that into a bowl with all the ingredients (specifics at the bottom). Then stir it together really well.

Heat a little bit of oil in a pan, medium-low heat. I always use cast-iron. (Here’s a post on how to treat your cast-iron skillet, if you were unsure!) Scoop a dollop of the mixture into the pan. This particular recipe made 6 small patties. You can modify as necessary.

Flip once, and you’re done. It took about 3 minutes per side for me.
