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!

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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!

    I’m with you on the fried foods – and the zucchini sort of cancels out the “bad” stuff in frying, right? Awesome SRC pick :-)

    What a great way to utilize the over abundance of summer veggies – this is on my menu planning for the summer!

    Looks great – I’m a big fan of zucchini fritters, especially for breakfast with a poached egg on top!
