You can either pan fry the zucchini patties or bake them in the oven. You’ll love them even if you are not a zucchini fan. They are super cheesy, tasty and healthy. It’s a great way to eat more vegetables.

How to make crispy keto zucchini fritters?

I know you want to make crispy on the outside zucchini fritters and moist (not soggy) on the inside.

The secret of getting those delicious crispy edges is to drain out as much liquid from the zucchini as possible. Grate the zucchini, add salt, set aside for 10 minutes, then squeeze excess liquid.

You can use any cheese you have on hand such as low moisture mozzarella, provolone or cheddar cheese – a combo of cheese is what I love. Parmesan is what I usually use because it adds tons of flavor and makes the zucchini patties even crispier.

How to serve zucchini fritters?

If you’re wondering how you can serve zucchini fritters, I have a few ideas you will definitely love.

  1. Serve zucchini fritters as a side dish with a dollop of sour cream or with ranch dressing.
