How do I make crispy zucchini cakes?

You want to make sure to use enough oil in the bottom of your skillet to coat the bottom so these cakes get nice and crispy.

Can I reheat zucchini fritters?

Absolutely! Just pop them back in your oven (preheated 375oF) and heat for about 10-15 minutes.

Can I freeze these zucchini cakes?

Definitely. Just cook as directed and let them cool. And then pop into a zip-loc bag and freeze for about 2 months.

How long will these zucchini fritters keep for?

You can keep them in the refrigerator for about 4 days. They make a perfect leftover dinner!

What do I serve with these zucchini cakes?

You can enjoy these as is. Or try dipping them. Try sour cream or greek yogurt. A sprinkle of sea salt. And enjoy!
