These zucchini fritters have so many uses! They make a great party appetizer or snack. But also you can eat them as a light lunch or even for breakfast with an egg on top! Lightly sautéed for some color and finished in the oven so you use a bit less oil. Always a family favorite in my house!
Mix up the dip before making the fritters so it has time to sit and develop the flavors.
Peel cucumber and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds using a spoon. Then cut the cucumber up into small diced pieces.
Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine. Salt and pepper to taste.
To make the fritters
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C.
To grate the zucchini, use a food processor or hand grater. Place the grated zucchini in a cheesecloth and squeeze well to remove as much of the moisture as you can.
Combine the zucchini, feta, garlic, green onion, mint, dill and egg in a bowl. When well mixed, add salt and pepper to taste. Mix again.
Add the flour and breadcrumbs until the dough is at a consistency you can form it into a patty. Lightly sprinkle each side of patty with additional flour.
Heat 1 T of olive oil in a skillet. When hot, add the patty and cook just until browned, then flip to other side. Remove from skillet and place patties on a baking sheet, lightly coated with cooking spray. Bake in oven for 15 minutes.
