I made these tonight as a side to hamburgers and hot dogs and we ate them with ranch dressing. I initially made these large, and they didn't turn out so well. The second batch I made them no larger then the size of my palm and cooked them at medium heat and they turned out terrific. I definately will make these again!Thanks for a nice low carb side, they are hard to come by. :)

I really liked these. I served mine with low carb ranch dressing. Thanks for sharing. I was started to get bored. This will be great next summer with all my fresh zucchini. I used some shredded zucchini that I frozen from last summer. It was a comination of zucchini and yellow squash.
