  1. Very tasty. Easy to make. Next time I think I will use onions instead of scallions and another clove of Garlic. Good recipe!
  2. Delightful, Sandra! These could be served perfectly as an appetizer with a simple sauce. Don't skimp on the salt & pepper! Thanks for posting, Sandra!
  3. Made a double batch of this with one zucchini and one yellow squash, farm fresh eggs, cheddar cheese and added a bit of cayenne, thyme, and basil and they were a huge hit at work! I also added a bit of butter to the olive oil (for flavor) Thanks :)
  4. These were very good. I used parmesan cheese and a a yellow onion, so no blue cheese for us. They were good. My girls loved them and so did we. Good way to use up the zucchini. Thanks!!
  5. These were so good! It was very hard not to eat all of them. Like other users, I used what I had on had, that being yellow onion and mozzarella. Only other thing was iIsalted the zucchini and left it in a colander for 30 min. then squeezed out the moisture. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.


  1. Very good & tasty. I used Onions instead of scallions & 3 cloves of garlic. I have made similar Zucchini patties before using Parmesan cheese. These are Very good I will sure be making these again.

I've written a Cookbook called THE REALLY GOOD FOOD COOK BOOK available at Barnes & Noble.com, Amazon.com and on all other Internet book sites for $14.59. I love cookbooks, like mine, which have lots of information about food and life. Thus M.F.K. Fisher is one of my favorite cook book authors. But my abiding passion is GOOD FOOD, REALLY GOOD FOOD.
