    This is an excellent basic and quick recipe. I have been using it all summer! Sometimes I switch it up by adding Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. It is easy to make gluten-free by changing the flour. Thank you CoffeeMom!

    I could not finish eating my patties when I tried this recipie due to the texture. It was too mushy, like soggy egs. I think i will stick to my traditional way of frying zucchini. I fry my zucchini by cutting it into round slices, dipping the slices into egg, then into seasoned flour. The "breaded" slices are then fried in a pan. This gives the zuccini slices a crisp outside and a juicy inside. Great taste and texture!

    The family called it "Pancakes From Mars", but everyone liked it. Another way to serve the abundance of zucchini.

    What a great way to use up some of that abundant Zucchini. Thanks for the great recipe. Made exactly as directed, with the exception of cutting the recipe in half. This is a very easy recipe to adjust to a smaller or larger serving.

    My mom used to make these all the time when I was little and I loved them, so happy to find this recipe! I did cut back on the amount of oil to 2 tbs. and I used seasoned salt (Zatarains) instead of regular salt and it made the patties a touch spicy...so good!
