Saturday Stirrings

'Tis the season for sneaking zucchini onto porches! Mom's preferred method was baking, and unfortunately that one never appealed to me. In fact, I was quite repulsed by the mushy texture. I enjoy it stir fried, in bread, and my favorite: fritters or pancakes, as some call them.

Serve as an appetizer or side dish. You can substitute yellow squash or use a mixture of both. Dip them in ranch dressing, if you like!

Zucchini Fritters
5 tb bisquick or pancake mix
1/2 c parmesan cheese
1/4 ts salt
1/8 ts pepper
2 eggs, beaten
2 tb butter
2 c zucchini, grated (one medium zuc) and drained if very runny

Blend first four ingredients. Add eggs. Mix zucchini into batter. Grease hot pan or griddle with butter. Pour batter into pan and fry 3 minutes on each side. Serve warm. Makes 8 to 10 fritters.

Now hop on over to Carol's place for a delicious-sounding recipe called Monkey Bread!

I love these things. We usually make ours with squash though. We just discovered them this summer. Even the kids and hubby will eat them--amazing!

I wish somebody would sneak some zucchini onto my porch! Maybe I should plant some next year, huh?
