dinner for one

This is what I could have had for dinner … and very nearly did because by the time I rolled in (along with the wicked storm clouds) it was pretty late. 

This is what I did have for dinner, because the zucchini was taunting me from its perch.  So there I was, totally conflicted.  But … I made the fritters.  The recipe is from Josh and luckily, it was pretty simple.   I don’t think I could have done something uber complex.

What to use:

2 -3 small zucchini, coarsely grated (I grated two large slices of the Liechtenstein Zucchini)

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

2 eggs, beaten

2 garlic cloves, pressed (flying solo means totally enjoying garlic in epic quantities!!)

a bunch of chopped up herbs (I used basil cuz it’s what I had)

Salt & Pepper to taste

How to get it done:

Preheat oven to 400.

1.   Thoroughly squeeze grated zucchini until it’s as dry as possible.

2.  Beat eggs in bottom of large mixing bowl.

3.  Add squeezed zucchini and garlic to eggs.  Mix.

4.  Add bread crumbs, Parmesan, herbs, salt and pepper.  Mix gently until completely combined. 

5.  Form into patties.

6.  Place on cookie tray (I covered mine with aluminum foil and *forgot* to spray it with cooking spray.  Don’t forget!!)

7.  Bake for 10 minutes on one side, and ten on the other.  (I approximated this ~ just make sure that when you press on the fritters, they are firm).

Yum Yum delish.

PS.  Told you I could eat fresh corn every day!  Still not a corn on the cob … yet!

PPS. For anyone who was curious, Joel Grey’s daughter is Jennifer Grey, she of “Dirty Dancing” fame (and “Dancing with the Stars” Champion ~ but I forget the season!)
