We enjoyed the flavor of these patties, it was a delightfully different way to prepare zucchini. To make it even more low fat, I substituted egg beaters for the eggs. I had to use 2 cups of freshly made breadcrumbs to get the patties to stick together, then I placed them on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam and lightly sprayed the tops instead of using butter. I baked them for the required time and they came out beautifully, slightly crisp and flavorful.
These were great! I halved the recipe so I wouldn't eat too much. I used 1 medium sized zucchini (didn't bother measuring, just eyeballed it), used seasoning salt in place of regular, and subbed mozzerela in place of parm. In this a versatile recipe and tasted great!
These were very nice, I used my homemade bread to make the crumbs w/w of course and I used just the egg white, molly my wee dog gets the yolk that way it's better for my diet. I didn't use all the cheese as it was full fat, I can't get low fat Parmesan here. I had some leftover and I had one cold and they were very nice but better right out the oven, nice and crispy. I liked these a lot a great use of zucchini and good for you too. I baked mine in the oven and used 1 cal spray on them to brown no butter for me. I will be making them again. Sometimes you just want a vegetarian meal and this fits right in there.Thank you for posting. Made for, A rainbow of colour the diabetic forum March 2011.
Original recipe calls for fat free parmesan and 1/2 cup egg substitute....this brings the recipes fat content to 1 gram fat per patty.
A delicious and fancy way to serve zucchini to guests at lunch or dinner
Very good recipe. I made it on the stovetop and it worked out great.
Great recipe. I didn't have any onions on hand so used some onion salt and added some finely chopped red peppers for colour. As the others had commented I omitted the melted butter on top and added some more parmesean. Decided to be creative, either that or was too lazy to make them into patties so put it into a casserole dish and topped that with the bread crumbs and parmesean. Will make this again and will include this recipe for our Christmas dinner.
I made these last night for my husband and he really liked them. I did add a little fresh garlic to add some flavor, and I sprinkled a little grated parmesan into the dry bread crumbs that you coat the zucchini patties in. I had no problem preparing the zucchini patties with only one cup of soft bread crumbs. They turned out beautifully. I recommend not brushing with butter after you coat the zucchini with the dry bread crumbs, because it just makes a mess.
