These zucchini patties have a nice flavor and are compatible with just about any entree. My sister gave me this recipe and I, in turn, have given it to many of my friends. —Annabelle Cripe, Goshen, Indiana


  • 2 cups shredded zucchini
  • 1/2 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients. Stir in eggs; mix well. Shape the mixture into 6 patties, using about 1/4 cup zucchini mixture for each patty. In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter; cook patties until lightly browned, 4-5 minutes on each side.

Zucchini Patties Tips

Why are my zucchini patties falling apart?

Excess water can cause your zucchini patties to fall apart. Make sure to pat your shredded zucchini dry of excess water before adding it to the binding mixture. The binding mixture (biscuit mix, cheese and eggs) helps keep your zucchini patties together, too.

How do you store zucchini patties?

Store these zucchini patties in an airtight container in the fridge for about three to four days. You can also freeze them for about two months. Here's how long other leftovers last.

How do you serve zucchini patties?

Serve zucchini patties with a dipping sauce, like ranch or garlic cucumber dip. They also pair well with many other main dishes. Try serving them with grilled salmon, lime chicken or any of these summer dinner ideas.
