Easy Zucchini Fritters – Easy, Light, Crispy!

You should try this Easy Zucchini Fritters recipe if you’ve got some extra squash around.  (Even if you don’t have any extra around, you can usually find it at the grocery store without any problem.)

Easy Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Squash is a staple in many Southern gardens.  It’s usually pretty easy to grow and rather prolific.  That means that there is usually some extra around.

These are light and crispy and incredibly easy to make.   If the plain version doesn’t suit your fancy, try adding about 1/2 teaspoon of curry powder to give them a kick.  I love them both ways!
