      I made these for brunch and they came together easily. I grated enough zucchini for a little over 3 cups before squeezing dry. I ended up stirring in a little more flour to get a texture I thought would hold together. I feel that might be due to the difference in zucchini sizes & moisture. The spices added so much flavor to the fritters I felt the cheese & sour cream toppings could be optional. Good luck in the contest!

      We really enjoyed these tasty fritters that we had as a meal with a salad on the side. I made the recipe for the fritters as stated, although I did need to add an extra egg.maybe due to the size of my zucchini as medium sized can vary somewhat. I used a blended gluten-free flour and made the fritters slightly larger than the 2 tablespoons stated. I served them with the salsa and sour cream- probably about half the stated amount. The spices added to these fritters really complimented the plain flavours of the zucchini and egg. Photo also to be posted. Wishing you good luck in the Dining on a $ contest
