A person can only eat so many slices of zucchini bread or cake! You know how that goes ~ if your garden or your neighbor’s has a plant or two of zucchini ~ you’ll have copious amounts of zucchini!
For a change, this recipe comes into play. Combine shredded zucchini with the nutty, sweet and salty taste of Gruyère cheese, add some chopped onions, a little chipotle pepper sauce and seasonings; shape into patties and sauté in olive oil for a crispy, lip-smacking veggie dish. These are quick to make; only needing a couple of minutes on each side for sautéing.
Serve them as an appetizer or as a side dish with grilled seafood, chicken or just with your favorite green salad! Now you have a good recipe for your plethora of lovely zucchini!
