"These are great appetizers. You can prepare the batter ahead then you can bring it out to make the fritters at the last minute".


2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
2 Tblsp. olive oil
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
1 medium zucchini, grated and drained in a colander
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 Tblsp. finely chopped onion
1 Tblsp. minced parsley
Oil for frying

  • Sift together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine the egg, olive oil, 1/2 cup of the milk, salt and pepper. Beat to a smooth paste and gradually add sifted flour mixture (consistency will be very stiff).
