Cheesy Zucchini Fritters

Today I show you a great dinner recipe, which is easy and simple to make, it’s ready in 30 minutes and is delicious as well. Let’s see how to prepare cheesy zucchini fritters!

These lovely fritters are made of grated zucchini, sliced spring onion and bell pepper, flour, egg, spices and our big favourite FETA cheese. After every vegetable is grated or sliced, just stir together all the ingredients, then scoop them into preheated oiled skillet, cook them, flip them, cook again, then serve them. That’s it!

The taste of zucchini fritters is amazing, you can feel the crumbled feta amongΒ the zucchini, all into a soft fried pancake. These savoury veggie fritters make a perfect combination with garlicky sour cream or you can serve them with your favourite dip or sauce.

In the recipe below you can find the garlic sour cream dip recipe as well. This mixture is a great dip, we like it very much with fried or baked meat, fries and savoury pastries. So trust me, feta-cheesy zucchini fritters with garlicky sour cream is a perfect combination.

These cheesy zucchini fritters are perfect for a light vegetarian weeknight dinner, breakfast or even for snacks, they are tasty warm and also chilled (if any remain, but honestly I don’t think so – our fritters were gone in 10 minutes).
