If you really were the recipient of an overgrown zucchini and you’re not artistically inclined enough to create a sculpture, or don’t feel the need to play vegetable baseball in the heat, then this is a good recipe for you. This dish, unlike the others, doesn’t taste like zucchini. It tastes like crab cakes. These are not only great hot from the pan, but throw one of them between some bread with a thick slice of tomato and you have yourself an amazing sandwich.
Savory Zucchini Cakes
*(look for old bay seasoning mix in the herb and spice section of your supermarket, or near the seafood)
Combine zucchini, egg, breadcrumbs, onion, and spices. Shape into patties about the size of the palm of your hand. Pat patties with flour. This will help them keep their shape. If at this point you are covered with floury glue and zucchini, congrats, you are doing it right!
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a thin layer of oil. Cook the patties until golden brown. They work best cooked in small batches and kept warm in the oven until ready to serve.

Now that you’ve rid your kitchen of the zucchini you should head back to the farmers market for the next adventure. Next time – what to do with fresh green beans, other than pour mushroom soup and french fried onions over them. Happy Eating!
