I think this recipe is from either Taste of Home Cooking blog or Menonite Girls Can Cook...I can't remember. This is my slight variation:
2 zucchini, grated(about 3 1/2 c.)
2/3 c. shredded Cheddar cheese (I use mexican blend)
2/3 c. round buttery crackers (like Ritz), crumbled
Salt to taste
2 T oil (I use olive oil)
Chopped lemon basil sprinkled on top; about 6 medium leaves (optional)-My addition
Hot sauce to taste (optional)-My addition
Large thinly sliced garden tomato for topping (optional)-My addition
Panko bread crumbs if the mixture is a bit too watery (optional)-My addition again :) these are coarse plain bread crumbs that I like to use instead of finely coarse italian bread crumbs
Combine zucchini, egg, cheese, crackers and salt in a large mixing bowl. If mixture seems wet, add extra crackers (or panko bread crumbs); shape mixture into patties. Heat oil in a skillet; fry patties on medium heat; about 3-6 min on each side or until golden brown.
Add a tomato slice and top with a small handful (1-2 tbsp) of shredded cheese
Serve with hot sauce, honey mustard or ranch dipping sauce (optional)
Makes 3 large or 4 smaller servings.
