RECIPE: Zucchini Fritters

Posted June 29, 2017 by Fizzy Pop in Fizzy Pop, Fizzy Pop Collection, Recipe, Veggies and Sides, Zucchini Fritters / 0 Comments

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.

Ingredients:

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

Directions:
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!

RECIPE: Fudgey Chocolate Chunk Brownies

RECIPE: Fudgey Chocolate Chunk Brownies

By the time this recipe goes live weeks will have passed, never mind that.  It’s a Munchkin weekend but he’s off to see a movie for a couple of hours and I’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth coming on.  Nothing drastic but still a small craving is building.  Brownies maybe?  I’ve not made brownies in eons.  Off to Pinterest I went to find something new, different, brownie-ish.  And I found these at Something Swanky.  I had to give them a try.  Never mind that it’s closing in on bedtime.  Never mind that the last thing I need to is indulge in brownies, or anything so rich, that close to bedtime.  I had to make them!  And I did.  And they were delectable, the perfect rich ooey-gooey yumminess that soothed my sweet tooth and made a happy Munchkin when he came in (just as they were coming from the […]

RECIPE: Banana Bread

RECIPE: Banana Bread

It’s kids week on the blog which means another treat from one of the Minions of Mayhem.  Goobie was supposed to get his turn this month but alas, he’s still in California visiting with the grandparents.  I was in a panicked bind when a few other things worked out to my advantage so I simply switched him and Munch around.  With Munch doing all the book reviews this week as well I feel like it should be called Munch instead of Kids Week. We talked bout options and then chose to dip into my Grandma’s recipe collection.  Let me tell ya, Grandma Atkins was quite the cook, but especially quite the baker.  I’ve been promising the Minions banana bread for a while, and have a freezer full just waiting to be utilized when Munch decided it had to happen.  This week.  So that’s what we did, or should I say […]

RECIPE: Jacked Up Potatoes

RECIPE: Jacked Up Potatoes

I remember growing up my aunt frequently made some hash brown and cheese something that was called Party Potatoes.  I frequently made my own version thereof with shredded potatoes instead of frozen hash browns and just did my own thing with it.  It morphed a few times over the years but really settled when I made a mistake at the store one day.  Teach me not to pay attention when grabbing sour cream from the dairy case.  I got home with sour cream and chive dip.  The rest is history.  It has replaced sour cream in all the savory dishes and replaced French Onion dip for most chip dipping as well.  It’s fresh and light with flavor.  Who needs the other?  but I got sidetracked.  The reason I was buying sour cream to begin with is to make my potatoes.  I wasn’t going back to the store, one trip was […]
