Savory Zucchini Fritters for Mark

zucchini_fritter

Summer squash season has started and It makes me very happy, as it gives me license to make all sorts or yumminess celebrating zucchini and its relatives.

I wanted to start with simple zucchini fritters. My mom made those for me and my sister almost everyday during the summer, and we absolutely loved them dowsed with sour cream for breakfast. My mother-in-law made zucchini fritters for her boys, and when I had my kids – I kept the tradition, but started adding different twists to the original recipe, and all three of my boys love a different type of zucchini fritter.  I will start with the version that is  my oldest son’s favorite zucchini fritter with parsley and onions.
