We all have that friend. Or perhaps it's you... You know. The one that seems to have a garden overrun with gigantic zucchinis. So, of course you take a few off her hands. Why not? But after five loaves of zucchini bread, it's time to come up with some new ideas.
Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, these zucchini fritters make a healthy side that pairs well with many dishes. Plus, each recipe uses two whole zucchinis. And with an air fryer, there's no need to deep fry.
Since making these, I thought of so many possible additions- Shredded potatoes. Red peppers. Sweet corn. Cream Cheese. Chives. Garlic powder. Onion powder. Paprika. Hot sauce. Yum-my!
And, cheese lovers may want to consider doubling the quantity.
I recommend using a box grater. You could also use a food processor with a disc for grating.
Zucchini, as well as other vegetables, tend to have a lot of water. After grating, squeeze out as much water as possible. A cheese cloth is the best method, but you can also use a clean kitchen towel and/or paper towels. Placing in a colander and pressing down will also work.
For best results, reheat in the air fryer for 3-4 minutes. A microwave will also work in a pinch, but the fritter will become a bit soft and soggy.
With just 5 simple ingredients, these air fryer zucchini fritters make a great side dish! Simply add a protein for a complete meal!
