Zucchini or Cauliflower Fritters

Crispy on the outside, and moist but not soggy on the inside. This is a family favorite made by my mom, so whenever you are making food using stuffed zucchini you can always use the inner flesh to make a batch, or just go ahead and make one from scratch, these are kid-friendly and great […]
