Zucchin Recipe : Zucchin Cakes

As many of you may know I grew up in a rural farming community where the produce your grew and sold was also what you would find on the dinner table. Yes we ate veggies and fruit every meal and sometimes looking at some veggies like zucchini became a bit overwhelming.
But when mom served it up in awesome dishes like zucchini cakes we loved it and our plates were often left empty. I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe with those that you love as well.
Fresh zucchini, cheese, and spices blended together and fried until golden.
Makes: 8 Cakes
1 large zucchni grated, excess water removed (Note: To do this, after you grate the zucchini, put the grated zucchini into paper towels and squeeze to release the water)
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup panko bread crumbs
sprinkle of ground nutmeg, about 1/8 teaspoon (Note: If you add too much it can quickly take over the taste, less is more)
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste
1-2 tablespoons olive oil

Combine all ingredients, except olive oil, in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Using a heaping tablespoon form the mixture into 8 patties. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Once heated, add patties and cook until golden brown. About 3-4 minutes per side. Serve.

These are great when served with a dollop of ranch dressing. Enjoy!
