zucchini burger

We are swimming in zucchini over here. One week they're these little veggies the size of a cigar and the next, they're towering over a wine bottle.



Today, I'm going to share these healthy and delicious zucchini patties (think potato latkes but with zucchini pizazz.)

What you need (makes 4 large patties:)

1 large zucchini (doesn't have to be the 'roided out kind like I have, a regular "large" zucchini will do)
1/2 yellow onion
1 egg
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 pieces of bread broken or cut into small chunks
fresh basil
fresh parsley
garlic salt
pepper
olive oil

Dice the zucchini and onion. Place both in bowl together. Add the the breadcrumbs.Throw in the cheese. Then some chopped basil and parsley. Add the garlic salt and pepper to taste. If the mixture is liquidy, that's okay. Mine looked like this: (appetizing, no?)




Heat up your skillet and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Plop the mixture onto the griddle, attempting to form patty-like circles as it cooks. See...it looks just like a beef patty!


Flip over and voila! 



If you're feeling fancy (I always am when it comes to food) turn it into an avocado / bacon burger by adding sliced avocado, veggie bacon (or real) tomatoes and mustard and ketchup!
