This is really delicious. I added a grated sauteed onion so that it matched my ingredients in potato latkes. Wiithout adding salt, it is excellent for people who have kidney disease.

Everyone loved these, even vegetable haters! I used Splenda and egg whites, and I "fried" them in a pan sprayed with Pam. They fell apart a little, I think because of the Pam, but they tasted wonderful. Thanks for posting.

Even my sister who usually hates zucchini likes this one. I didn't use any oil (to cut down on the fat) when making this, and is was still excellent!
