Zucchini Fritters

Jessica Braider
When my kids were little, this was a dish that guaranteed that they would eat their zucchini! Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, they are fun and delicious! If anyone at the table is skeptical, you can also always serve this with your favorite dipping sauce such as ketchup or ranch dressing.
