All come together in this recipe-
I love zucchini but this recipe is my favorite. It’s from my next door neighbor in Clarion PA. (C.1980)
Nell Miller called them Poor Man Meatballs.
The key to success is getting as much moisture out as you can -which is a challenge. And I like using the cast iron skillet.
You grate or process about three (not the large seedy kind) zucchini
Tilt the bowl for a time to capture the wet. Drain off. Squeeze as dry as you can.
Add egg, dried Italian bread crumbs or plain with your own seasoning, salt and pepper. Toss with fork -add minced garlic. Mmmmmm can smell them now. Shape like potato pancakes not too big. My gluten-free friend used crushed Rice Chex instead of bread crumbs. Drain on paper towel.
You can eat them plain (my choice) or add to marinara sauce over pasta.
All three of these containers are in the garage on shelves and the Tiki Torch Fuel is in a high cupboard but this is the type of thing that makes me worry. That one could be mistaken for another. The nutritional information is a clue for the one bottle and I wish I didn’t worry so much.
Photographed these three lined up with the late afternoon sun streaming into the garage. I guess this post could be like those public service commercials, creating awareness.
