Make these with leftover ham, prosciutto or cooked bacon. Substitute cheeses too if you like. They make a great breakfast, Brunch or Lunch
My Kitchen Stories:
: Breakfast
Serves: 12
  • 300 gm Zucchinis grated or 2-3 zucchinis
  • 150 gm creamy ricotta
  • 50 gm grated parmesan ( can substitute another cheese)
  • 20 gm sliced green onion (1/4 cup approx)
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 eggs large (70 gms each)
  • 240 gm gluten free self raising flour [/b]( I used Aldi brand) (2 cups)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 125 ml olive oil or another oil for frying.( ½ cup )
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • salt if needed
  1. Gently squeeze the grated zucchinis to remove a little of the water. Put into a bowl and add the parmesan cheese, green onions and oregano.
  2. Put the ricotta into another bowl big enough to hold the entire mixture and break it up with a fork. Add the pepper and a sprinkling of salt, dijon then mix in the eggs till combined. Add one cup of flour and stir well . Add the zucchini mixture and the next cup of flour and fold the entire mixture together. Stand for 5 minutes while you prepare the pans
  3. Heat a large frypan on high and add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Add the mixture in big spoonfuls flattening into patties about the size of a hamburger patty. The mixture will make 12.
  4. Don't turn the patty till it is golden brown and once you turn it over lower the heat a little so that it cooks through properly and repeat. I use two frypans to keep one on high one on low and move the patties between. Drain each on kitchen paper as you take them out of the pan.
  5. Serve the patties with Chutney or with crushed avocado and roast tomatoes.
These patties taste great at room temperature
If you have plain gluten free flour add 1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
Mine are made with gluten free flour if you have plain white flour you will need to reduce the flour a bit. 11/2 cups and only fold in gently so you don't build up the gluten.
