Servings: 15


  • 1 large zucchini
  • 2 small yellow squash
  • 1 cup toasted breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup minced Vidalia onion
  • 2 large lightly beaten eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter


Grate zucchini and squash with a fine grater. Press between paper towels to remove excess moisture.

In a medium bowl, combine grated zucchini and squash and next 7 ingredients. Shape mixture into 2 inch patties, pressing together firmly.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook squash and zucchini cakes 3 to 4 minutes per side or until lightly browned.
