Deep fried zucchini fritters make a great appetizer or side dish. I make this recipe all the time and the kids don't know what hit them. Once in a while you could just make them as a snack for after school.
You can smell these fritters a mile away. They're crispy and delicious. This simple recipe will have you making these fritters on a regular basis. Serving them with a little dollop of sour cream only adds to they're delicious flavor.
