ZUCCHINI FRITTERS



Zucchini Fritters image

One day I wanted to serve zucchini as a side dish-but I didn't have the time to slice and deep-fry it. So I came up with these fritters instead! They go especially well with barbecued ribs or pork chops and corn on the cob. I'm an avid recipe clipper. I've also assisted at our church's Wednesday night suppers, cooking for as many as 125 people. -Mary Dixson, Catlin, Illinois
