Irresistible! Adding a ranch season package is such a smart way to add all your seasoning that’s already balanced. Quick too! But, I added 1/4 cup shredding parmesan cheese and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper to the batter. So good!!
The original recipe called for whole milk. I'm glad it's reduced to 2 %! I'm always looking for new zucchini recipes so I was happy to see this one. I wanted to make sure they were done in the center so I put a lid over the pan as they were frying, turning them over and over. I drain the zucchini well, grating it and putting it in a colander over a bowl to catch the liquid. I sprinkle a little salt and then after at least 10 minutes (preferably more), I push down against the grated zucchini to force more liquid out. This reduces the amount of Zucchini you end up with so keep this in mind. My family enjoyed dipping them in the Ranch dressing.
No Zucchini. No problem I had Success with Eggplant. Nice and light and puffy . I sautéed the eggplant just to soft stage before adding to the batter. I also added some oregano to the batter. And sautéed the eggplant to a soft stage. Allowed it to cool before adding to the batter. Gave each fritter a good Parmesan dusting before serving. Going to try Mushroom next. This is a keeper. Did I mention easy and quick.
Not bad. I made the recipe as it was written. The ranch dip does add some good flavor, but to me they were a little soft and doughy'ish, despite frying them to golden brown. I also squeezed out all of the moisture from the zucchini in a tea towel, so that wasn't the issue. I think it needs a little less milk. I think that may help. I'll try it with less milk next time.
Have made zucchini fritters before but never have thought of adding Ranch-style dip mix. Made them very good. I only put a little oil in my skillet and dropped by large tablespoonfuls. I had to fry at 350* or they would not have gotten done in the middle but would have burned on the outside. I will add the entire pkg of Ranch dip mix next time as it was such a good flavor and I think more in this case is better! Dip in Ranch dressing!
All I can say is yum! These are wonderful, and a very inventive way to use extra zucchini! I've also subbed coconut flour, about half the amount and made a gluten free version!
They are very good!! Added salt to taste on top. They really sucked up the oil, though. I might try half the flour and use Panko bread crumbs for the other half!! Also I would add some parmesan cheese!!! Good recipe for all the zucchini right now!!! Thanks!
These fritters were so good! The ranch seasoning made them really good!
Excellent!!! These were so good--will definitely make again and share the recipe with all the gardeners I know!!!
They puffed just as promised! Instead of the ranch dry, I added 1/4c of shredded parm, 1t of oregano and 1/2t salt. I also used more of a rounded tablespoon as opposed to teaspoon and served with ranch dressing as a dip. Very good.
