  • “This is really delicious.I added a grated sauteed onion so that it matched my ingredients in potato latkes.Wiithout adding salt, it is excellent for people who have kidney disease.”

  • “Everyone loved these, even vegetable haters!I used Splenda and egg whites, and I “fried” them in a pan sprayed with Pam.They fell apart a little, I think because of the Pam, but they tasted wonderful.Thanks for posting.”

  • “Even my sister who usually hates zucchini likes this one.I didn’t use any oil (to cut down on the fat) when making this, and is was still excellent!”

  • “These were great….my family has already told me that these need to be regulars during the zucchini season.Thanks for the great recipe!!!”
