How to Make Crispy Zucchini Fritters in the Oven
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Step 2: Grate the zucchini with a box grater or food processor with the grating attachment. Squeeze the grated zucchini to remove water. I do this by squeezing batches in my hands but you can also place it in a colander and press with a spoon to remove the excess water.

Step 4: Form into 8 or 9 equal shaped patties and place on a greased baking sheet.
Step 5: Bake for 15 minutes
Step 6: Turn and bake for an additional 15 minutes until crispy, golden brown.

- Use Italian seasoning instead of dried basil.
- Use chives instead of onion
