Zucchini Patties

Updated on July 23, 2015

Zucchini Patties

I told you there were a thousand recipes for Zucchini. I promise not to post all of them. Just the ones I love the most. I will save some for next summer.

My late sister-in-law showed me this recipe about 40 years ago. She was visiting from Syracuse, NY and it was in the summer right when we were getting so many zucchini I didn't know what to do with them all. I didn't have all the recipes I have now. I'm sure glad she was here then because this became one of the most popular things I do with zucchini and the one recipe I can get even the fussiest of my family members to eat.

I even make it to take on picnics at the park. They keep well wrapped in aluminum foil in the cooler. We like them at any temperature, hot, warm or cold. Try it, you'll like it!

  • If you have a griddle pan that works well for these patties also. Just grease it like you would pancakes. You don't want to deep fry them.
  • Make sure you squeeze out most of the water or the patties will not cook right in the center.

Cook time depends on how many patties you make

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: Yields about 6 patties depending on size.

Zucchini Patty Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 medium onion, grated
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • to taste salt and pepper
  • to taste garlic powder
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons canola oil


  1. Grate the zucchini in a colander. Grate the onion on top of the zucchini.
  2. Squeeze both with you hands to get rid of the water. Zucchini and onions both have a lot of water in them.
  3. Heat your pan on medium high heat with a little oil. Mean while put the zucchini and onion in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.
  4. When the pan and oil are hot drop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan. Cook until you see a slight crust from around the edges.
  5. Flip the patties and cook until they are firm in the middle. They are not good if they are soft and gooey in the middle. You can flip them back and forth if you have to.
  6. Make just a few at a time, not crowding the pan. Sprinkle just a little salt on the patties after you put them in the serving dish.
