NEW LINK UP: Friday Vegetarian Potluck!

Best Blogger Tips
I love going to potlucks.

I never just grab some packaged potato salad from the grocery store. Instead, I show-off by creating my tastiest recipes and trying to give them pleasing presentations.

Sampling the best dishes of my friends and family is also a treat. Inevitably, by the end of the meal, I’m stuffed, begging others for their recipes.

This week, I'm going to bring a batch of my Zucchini Patties.
I get asked about this recipe a lot, since many zucchini patties fall apart when cooking. These stay together well because the water is wrung out of the shredded zucchini before adding the other ingredients. The flour and bread crumbs bind with the zucchini and egg, creating a savory patty with a firm texture.

Zucchini Patties. Yum!

*2-3 medium zucchini
*1 egg, beaten
*1 cup bread crumbs
*1/4 cup green onion, minced
*1 clove garlic, minced
*1/2 cup all-purpose flour
*1/2 cup vegetable oil (for frying)


1. Shred zucchini with a grater or use a food processor with a shredder attachment, enough to yield 2 1/2 c.
2. Put shredded zucchini in a kitchen towel, wring out all the excess water. Remove from towel and place in mixing bowl.
3. Add egg, bread crumbs, green onion, garlic, and flour. Mix well.
4. Heat skillet on medium for 5 minutes. Add oil.
5. Spoon out portions of zucchini mix and shape into patties. Fry until golden brown.

In the spirit of a delicious potluck dinner, I’m hosting Friday Vegetarian Potluck. Mix up a batch of your favorite recipe and bring it over for supper. You can bring a main dish, a salad, bread, a dessert, any food you want to share.

We do have a few rules for our meal.

1. Your recipe needs to be vegetarian, but it can also be dairy-free, vegan, or gluten-free. Any recipe made without meat will do.

2. Your blog does not have to be about vegetarian food recipes. If you regularly write about gardening, that’s fine. If you usually post recipes with pork and poultry, you are welcome, too.

3. This doesn’t have to be a new recipe post, but I ask that you bring it to the blog only once.

4. Since potlucks are all about sharing, I ask that you post this invite on your blog post. It fits nicely into your html.

I'm looking forward to seeing what delicious recipe you bring!
