The recipe from my Clarion PA neighbor, Nell Miller, was called Poor Man Meatballs.
No meat was involved.
Take 3 zucchini and grate or use food processor. Tip bowl to let moisture run off and discard. Get zucchini as dry as you can.
Add an egg
and about 3/4 c Italian Bread crumbs. Add a minced garlic clove or two
Salt and pepper let sit a few minutes. Form in patties.
Sauté in olive oil ‘til brown on both sides. Cast iron skillet works wonderfully. Freshly grated Parmesan is always welcome
