Bacon Zucchini Fritters ~ #Recipes for #Foodies @DonnaFaz

I’ve had one of those days today. You know the ones, where you’re feeling creative in the kitchen. I pulled some ingredients out of my refrigerator and pantry, and I wondered what I could make with them. I had bacon, a zucchini, Locatelli cheese, eggs, flour, you get the picture. I came up with this recipe for Bacon Zucchini Fritters and it’s so delicious I decided to write it down. When you write it down, you know it’s good.

Bacon Zucchini Fritters Bacon Zucchini Fritters

Ingredients:

5 strips of bacon, fried crisp, drained, chopped
3 cups zucchini, grated (leave the skin on)
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Pecorino Romano cheese, grated
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced (slice a little extra for garnish)
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper, or to taste
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil for frying

Directions:

  1. Mix together all ingredients, except the oil, until well incorporated.

  1. Heat a frying pan on high until it’s hot, add oil to the pan, and then turn the pan down to medium heat. You want the oil almost to the smoking point.

  1. Use an ice cream scoop (a large spoon works too) to portion out the batter and fry in batches for about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Flip and fry on the other side until golden. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.

  1. I served these fritters as a side dish, garnished with thinly sliced scallions and a dollop of sour cream.

Serves 3-4

As teens, Josie and Alex met under golden sunshine, frolicked in the surf and sand, and fell head over toes in love. But circumstances arose that ruined their one glorious summer, and Josie fled Ocean City with a broken heart.

Now Josie’s grandmother is ill and needs help with the family business, a thriving harbor-side diner called Joe’s Place. So after more than a dozen years, Josie returns to her hometown only to discover she has a 180 pound problem—Alex is the Kitchen Commander at Joe’s Place. Surely, Josie can work with Alex to keep the diner going and retain her dignity until her grandmother is back on her feet. However, when Alex’s little girl starts scheming, not a single heart will be safe against the twelve-year-old matchmaker.
