Hello December 1! How is it December already?!? I had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend with my family. We spent today at the Buffalo Bills game and recreated a photo we took eight years ago.
I think we’re still looking pretty good! But maybe I’m a little biased
This month for the Secret Recipe Club I was matched with Andrea from Adventures in All Things Food. I am blown away by all Andrea does on her blog (I am lucky if I post once a week) since she has three children under six. Kudos to Andrea!
I loved searching through her site since she has great craft projects that I want to try and recipes. I ultimately decided on Zucchini Fritters. As the weather gets colder, there is nothing better than warm, fried food. I changed the seasonings slightly and oh so good!
- 1 zucchini
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cajun seasoning
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Difficulty: easy
Either hand grate or use a food processor to grate the zucchini. Since it was just one, I just used a handheld grater.
After grating the zucchini, put it in a colander, salt lightly, and let sit for about fifteen minutes (gets out moisture-- must do or else the fritters will be soggy!).
Mix the egg, flout, and baking powder in a bowl. Add the onion and zucchini ans the pepper and cajun seasoning.
In a pan, heat the oil-- you should have about 1/2 inch of oil in the pan. Heat it until the oil bubbles when you test it with a drop of water.
Drop about two tbs of fritter batter at a time into the oil. Cook until each turn golden brown. Cool finished fritters on a paper towel that will get some grease out too. Serve alone or as a side or with dipping sauces. Enjoy!
