Baked Zucchini Tater Fritter Appetizer Recipe

Appetizer or side dish..I know you think of a fritter as fried and yes they taste better, but this is a healthy baked version with taters in them. I make these when I have lots of summer zucchini squash and leftover mashed potatoes.. They go great with any meal.

A mixture of mashed potato, zucchini, cheese, bread crumbs and spices then baked...no eggs!
The inside is soft with a cheesey garlic flavor.



1 cup mashed potatoes

1/2 small zucchini grated or half a large one pulse in food processor

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, cayenne pepper, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper

1/4 cup Italian flavored bread crumbs or more to hold together, should be a firm drop mixture

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoon grating cheese

optional 2 tablespoon olive oil

Mix grated zukes and mashed potato all together, add cheese and spices, drop by tablespoons on a parchment lined cookie sheet bake at 400 until cheese is golden brown on top.
