It’s fritter time!
Greek zucchini fritters to be exact.
To be honest I had a hard time coming up with a name for this recipe because I couldn’t settle on fritter, tots, or bites. I went with fritter.
I think it works pretty well for these tasty little bites. Not only are they the perfect little appetizer (or side dish!) but they are PERFECT for dipping and for jazzing up your everyday appetizer spread.
I mean, pretzels are a great dipper but let’s face it – these fritters are even better!
I teamed up with Sabra once again to bring you their awesome new Mediterranean bean dips.
Unlike hummus, they are made with either black beans, white beans, or red beans.
They’re an excellent choice for you all you plant-based diet lovers, packed full of vegetables and beans, 2 grams of protein per serving, AND full of Mediterranean flavors.
Basically, these dips are the best and you need to get your hands on them on ASAP!
Don’t worry, you don’t have to go searching high and low for these babies.
You can find them right in your store’s deli dip section.
I couldn’t resist making a little dipper for these dips so that is why I came up with these Greek zucchini fritters.
They are PACKED full of grated zucchini, feta cheese, panko breadcrumbs, and lots of minced fresh herbs.
They are delicious eaten straight off the sheet pan but even better when scooping up all that Mediterranean dip flavor.
Oh, and they are baked. Yep, no messy frying required!
I also think these dips are the perfect addition to ANY party platter. I mean, who doesn’t love dipping? If you’re anything like me I head straight for the dip at parties and don’t look back.
Basically, my motto at parties is “when I dip you dip we dip!”
BTW if you were born after 1984 I feel like you won’t get that reference #Xennial
OH, and before I forget, make sure you wring out all that extra water in the zucchini before you measure it out. I like to shred it up, put in a dish towel (or strong paper towels) and give it a good squeeze. You’ll be amazed at all the water that comes out.
Don’t worry, some water will still remain but you do need a little to help hold together these little fritters. And if you wanted to make these fritters as a side dish you can make the patties larger and bake them for just a bit longer. Oh, and once again, don’t forget to give them a flip in the middle of the baking process. You want that fritter golden and delicious on all sides!
