Knock yer socks off Zucchini Cakes
Since I don't have a garden myself (still traumatized by the tomato worms of '07!) I am glad that I have great friends with even greater gardens! A great way to use up all those zucchini's you got lying around!
Also try this great chocolate zucchini bread recipe, which is indeed more like a cake and is ta-die-for :)
I made these last night for dinner with some steaks. They were really super tasty. I'll definitely be making these again. These taste great by themselves, with spaghetti sauce or ranch dressing.
Keep bringing on the good stuff PW!
Makes 1 dozen cakes
1 large zucchini
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
3/4 cup Progresso bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Wash and cut ends off zucchini. Shred zucchini with the large holed side of a cheese grater. Squeeze the zucchini shreds in a paper towel to remove as much moisture as possible.
Combine zucchini, garlic, bread crumbs, cheese, eggs in a medium bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well mixed.
Heat olive oil in a shallow skillet (with oil being about 1/4 inch deep). When the oil is nice and hot, place a glob of zucchini into the oil and flatten slightly. Cook each side about 2 minutes each or until nice and browned.
