Fritters are a serious winner when it comes to easy and tasty dinners – or even lunches- and work so well because you can do so much with them. Once you have your base down you can add whatever you like to pimp out the flavour and pack in all your favourites. This zucchini version is great for anyone wanting a something a little naughty and a little nice… It’s got the zucchini for your daily greens hit, and plenty of cheese for that amazing flavour. If you want to mix it up a little, add some ham or bacon or grated carrot. Serve your patties up with a squeeze of lemon and a dollop of creme fraiche. Delish!
