It seems like this time of year, our garden is always overrun with zucchini – not that I'm complaining! It gives me a wonderful excuse to make these delicious Zucchini Hushpuppies again! These things are so amazingly delicious. You can't eat just one – I dare you! And why would you want to? It's the best of both worlds – healthy vegetables and fried foods – yes please!
This recipe is adapted from Eatin' on the Cheap. I like the subtle flavor of onion powder versus the minced that the original recipe calls for. And what fried food would be complete without a sprinkle of salt? I have a picky eater with some sensory issues, so I grate the zucchini instead dicing or mincing. I hope you like this version of Zucchini Hushpuppies!
(Note: If you like a little heat, you could add some minced jalapeno – Mr. Juggling Act loves them this way! About 1 jalapeno seeded and minced is enough for one batch)
Now these puppies (pun intended!) are delicious on their own… but, I come from a family that loves condiments and sometimes we can't let well-enough alone. My dad would eat these with maple syrup, I think… he loves maple syrup on lots of things! Me? I eat them with a little butter. However you eat them, you won't be disappointed.
