    I'm about to cook a batch of zucchini fritters.
    Zucchini
    onion
    garlic
    parsley
    milk
    flour
    eggs
    fetta
    Parmesan
    salt
    pepper

    mum seems to think they won't freeze well.
    Any care to prove her wrong?
    I would of thought it'd be ok

    best to freeze raw or cooked mixture?

    Go nuts and freeze them - I've done it many of times (with cooked fritters). If you microwave them to heat them up - they turn out soft and a little soggy - but definitely good for a quick snack!

    they were delish
    the key is to over salt n pepper or add some gutsy flavoured cheese or else it will be bland

    500gm Zucchini
    1 sml onion
    3 cloves garlic
    2 tlb parsley
    1 cup milk
    2 cups plain flour
    3 eggs
    fetta (i actually used tasty cheese) 125gm
    Parmesan 50 - 100gm depending on taste
    salt
    pepper

    its simple really
    cut the zucchini in half and remove the seeds in the middle with a spoon then grate them and squeeze off excess water (this is important or it will be too watery)
    dice an onion
    grate garlic
    chop parsley
    add cheese, eggs, salt(1tlb?) n pepper
    sift in flour

    mix all in a big bowl to make a batter
    put in the fridge for 30-60 mins so its thickens and is easier to ladel
    add oil of your choice to a pan
    fry for 2-3 mins on a low to medium heat each side
    place in the oven on a low temp to keep warm whilst the others cook

    sweet chilli sauce in a dipping bowl and your done!

    kinda like cooking savoury pancakes really
    make a batter and fry them :D
