This was a wonderful recipe!!! I used cracker crumbs in place of bread crumbs and used a whole egg in place of two whites. It came out great. Thanks for posting! Barb

I figured this was going to be awful or awesome. It's awesome. I made use of the food processor to get grated vegetables and used Marinara Migliore Marinara Migliore (Italian Marinara Sauce). There were no leftovers.

I really wanted to make something tasty and different with zucchini, other than bread, or roasted, etc. These were wonderful, and sooo tasty! I took one of my older dish towels(can stain a little green), and rang out basically every possible drop of liquid from it. From that point, everything went like clockwork. My one son won't touch any green veggie other than broccoli(go figure that one!), but after his brothers and sisters kept grabbing them as I was making them, he caved in, and actually sort of gave a look of acceptance! I did not think they needed the sauce, for they were quite tasty on their own, but I should give it a try. Thanks for posting a real keeper for this family!

I really tonight these weren't going to work! I used two cups of breadcrumbs, 2 eggs only and I squeezed my zucchini to within an inch of its life! I struggled to get them together, I decided a chilling might help but they just leaked more water. In the end they cooked up ok and were crispy on the outside and moist on the inside.

YUM! Made these delightful zucchini patties today. I used six smallish yellow and green squash, 3 whole eggs (no separate whites), and kashi cereal for the breadcumbs (I didn't have any breadcrumbs on hand and didn't feel like making them!). Needed about 1.5 c of cereal, but seemed to work okay! They tasted great. We skipped the marinara sauce and ate them plain-served up out of the oven for kids playing out by the pool. Made about 20. Next time I'll skip the sauce again, but add some extra spices to add a little heat. Maybe a curry sauce would be good? We'll see! Did squeeze out a little extra juice before placing the patties on the pan.

Excellent recipe. I used cornflake crumbs instead of the bread crumbs and also used a whole egg in place of the two whites. We were given several HUGE zucchini with dry meat and a hard rind, but we grated part of one up to get 6 cups of grated zucchini for this recipe. We baked as directed and dipped into some marinara sauce to eat. Because the zucchini had spent such a long time in the garden, it was a bit fibrous but these morsels were really tasty and enjoyed by all. Thanks for posting this, I've got several more zucchini in the fridge that are now waiting for this recipe again!

I love this recipe! I make a double batch and my family eats about half when I'm making them. I've also stored them in the freezer and popped them in the oven to reheat and they are just as good.
