- Grate zucchini, no need to peel or seed unless seeds are large; sprinkle zucchini with salt; let set 15 to 20 minutes, then drain WELL.
- Add the beaten egg, bisquick, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt& pepper to the drained zucchini and mix well, batter will not be stiff or real thick.
- Using a large skillet heat, add oil enough to fry patties, Drop by tablespoon to make a pattie about 2 to 3 inches in diameter, cook over mediun heat until browned on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes each side.
- Place patties between paper towels. Keep warm in oven until ready to serve, Enjoy.

Loved these! The flavor was very nice and I liked the texture as well. I noticed that some reviewers had trouble getting the patties done, and the first time I made these I had the same trouble. I used hand-grated zucchini and that DID NOT work. My zucchini was so mushy that the patties barely stayed together and I could not get them cooked through. Try #2. I used a salad shooter, skipped letting the zucchini set to drain (the first time I made them I tried this method and it did absolutely nada). Here's what I've found works: The key to getting the moisture out is to place the grated zucchini between paper towels and pressed hard. You may have to use several sheets, but it works. Also, cook them on LOW for a LONGER period of time, instead of high/medium heat for 2-3 minutes. I've made these several times now and I always enjoy them. Thanks so much for posting, Barb!1Reply
This is a great recipe, I thought I had reviewed it years ago when I started making it for my son at age 2 who is now 7 and was and still is a picky eater. I could always get him to eat these because we called them the green pancakes. I started making it exactly as the recipe was written and it's never failed to be delicious. Over the years, I've added fresh herbs and different cheeses as I've had them in the fridge. It's a perfect easy breakfast, lunch or addition to dinner!Reply
This recipe unfortunately did not work out for me. I made as directed but they were too mushy on the inside. I even added about 1/2 cup more Bisquick to no avail. They did get crispy on the outside but after cooking for much longer than the stated time, they seemed raw on the inside even though they probably weren't. I guess I just didn't care for the texture. They smelled delicious while cooking but the texture was an issue for DH and me. Based on other reviews the recipe seems to be okay but given my preference for a firmer pattie, I don't think it is fair to rate the recipe.Reply
