Crocodile Fritters

Ingredients
  • 3 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped jalapenos or chiles

So you go away for a week or so, and when you come back there is something long and green lying under your zucchini bush. That's what we call a North Dakota crocodile. What you can do with such a beast is make crocodile fritters. The recipe below is substantially one lifted from the Christian Science Monitor. We doctored it up a little, most notably by adding the jalapeno peppers, which give it a little more zip. You may have your own ideas as to garden produce or seasonings to add to the mix. Ours is never the same twice.
  1. Mix the vegetables, herbs, cheese, eggs, and seasonings in a bowl.

  2. Heat oil in a deep skillet for frying

  3. Fry blobs of the zucchini mix in oil

These are nice with a little sour cream, and a salad on the side.
