Don't worry- they're quite healthy! :D (Well, maybe if you overlook the fat aspect. ;) )

Connie's Zucchini Crab Cakes


2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 egg, beaten [ I used 2 small!]
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup bread crumbs [I used some stale homemade bread. Storebought bread is too spongy to crumble easily.]
1/4 cup minced onion
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning TM [more like 1 1/2- adjust to taste]
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil LARD!!* for frying


[Wring zucchini in dish towel to avoid a watery mess! Zucchini's water content is equal to that of tomatoes!] In a large bowl, combine zucchini, egg, and butter or margarine. Stir in seasoned crumbs, minced onion, and seasoning. Mix well.
Shape mixture into patties. Dredge in flour.
In a medium skillet, heat oil lard over medium high heat until hot. Fry patties in oil lard until golden brown on both sides. [Serve with tartar sauce. Or just whip together a little mayonnaise and relish for a quick substitute. ]

*Preferably the nonhydrogenated homegrown stuff. Maybe check at local farms for availability.

I read something somewhere about all fat not being bad. You need some fats, depending on what they are.

I just made zucchini noodles for spaghetti for dinner. I just missed this recipe by a few minutes. I have a supply of zucchini so Ill try this this season.

I agree about the fats! I just put that disclaimer there since some people are leery of fried foods. I think if you focus on less-processed fats you're going in the right direction.

And yes, by all means, do try this recipe! Zucchini have a way of taking over so I like to find new recipes for them.

  • I read some folks hatched Trader Jo’s Fertile eggs!
    I saw some fertile brown chicken eggs at Uwajimaya yesterday for $4.99/dz.
    Very tempted.
    All of my last batch of Costco’s Organic eggs were also fertile.
    Some of the Egglands Best also that way. Hmmmm
    Maybe it is a Spring thing??? Fertile eggs everywhere except for in my duck’s nest.
    She went broody over 2 blue easter eggs…hahaha
    But that would be an inexpensive way to hatch some eggs.
