    Makes: 15 fritters

    • 1 potato
    • 3 zucchini, grated
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 1/2 sweet onion, finely diced
    • 10 fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
    • 250g feta cheese, crumbled
    • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
    • 6 tablespoons plain flour
    • 1/2 cup olive oil, as needed
    • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper, to taste

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil then place the potato into the water. Boil until tender, about 20 minutes; remove and let cool. When cool enough to handle, finely dice.
    2. In a bowl, mix together the cooked potato, zucchini, egg, onion, mint leaves, feta cheese and bread crumbs to make a mixture that holds together when pressed lightly.
    3. Place flour into a separate shallow dish. Form the zucchini mixture into small patties then dust patties in flour on both sides.
    4. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Fry the zucchini patties until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain the patties on paper towels; serve hot.

    Cook's note

    You can spoon drop the mixture into frying pan if the consistency isn't forming patties well. Just lightly flatten once in pan to evenly cook.

    LOVE this! I added some caraway seeds, and baked instead of fried. Only used 2 zucchini. It was easy to form. No problem, not too wet or dry. Absolutely perfect and will make them a thousand more times. Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!  -  09 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Nice flavour, just a bit on the soft side, added some extra breadcrumbs. Put them in the oven for 5 minutes to crisp up a little, seved on pita with tatziki, lettuce, cucumber and tomato. Finished with a squeeze of lemon. Very nice, worth making again and experimenting with a little.  -  06 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Holy moly these are AWESOME. This will definitely become a family tradition. I recommend one small change-dredge the fritters in panko bread crumbs instead of flour. Serve fritters with tzatiki sauce and you will be dining with Zeus.  -  06 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
