A delicious way to serve squash. I used 2 medium to large zucchini. The onions were chopped using the food processor then the squash and cheese shredded with the medium shredder blade. It is important to get the mixture tight so it holds together. I think I did use more flour than the recipe called for. These were served with curry ketchup on the side. Made for PAC Fall 2011.

Very nice variation on squash fritters! We enjoyed the addition of cheese. I used yellow squash and gluten-free flour. Thanks for sharing! PAC Fall '11

Oh my these are good, good, good! I had never eaten squash fritters before. I just had to taste them after they were done even though my meat wasn't done yet. They are so good that I am having to force myself not to eat all of them before dinner is served. I will definitely make these again. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
