This sounds a little weird, but the taste is astounding!! A good way to get rid of some of that prolific zucchini, too!! Small patties make a great hors d'oeuvre for parties. My experience is that zucchini can have different amounts of juice, so the bread crumbs may need to be increased. Also, more Old Bay can be added to taste.

Have so much zucchini this year and was glad to find another way to fix it. Loved the Old Bay and learned something new about letting the zucchini drain, made alot of difference. I did spray the pan because my husband can't eat fried foods. Very Good!
