RECIPE: Zucchini Fritters

Another Fizzy original.  Odds are that all of us are familiar, in some way, with friend zucchini.  Restaurants serve it as sticks, fries, rounds, etc.  Growing up I did something a little different.  It had to be different because all the zucchini in the house had been shredded already for zucchini bread.  And frozen.  But I wanted zucchini.  So this little masterpiece was born and remains a favorite.

1/2 Cup zucchini, shredded
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Baking Mix
1 egg
shredded cheese, your preference
oil for frying

Mix everything together but the oil. If you batter is too thick add a little milk to thin it.  Think pancake batter consistency.  Meanwhile in a frying pan heat your oil.  Spoon or pour the batter into the pan in separate 'patties'.  When bottom is cooked turn over and cook the other side.
Continue, draining on a paper towel, until all batter is cooked.  Mom likes them with ketchup.  I like them plain.  A quick snack, a side to a healthier meal, the choices are limitless. 
I didn't realize the picture blurred...sorry but yummy!
