Today was a weird day. I am trying to get school plans done. But life goes on in the middle. And wouldn't you know, those kids wanted to eat somewhere around 12:00 noon.
We needed something quick, easy, healthy and tasty. A look in my fridge revealed a bowl of grated zucchini. My computer-like mind remembered a recipe for zucchini patties I had seen in an Amish cookbook. So, I set out to make said zucchini patties. I only kind-of sort-of followed the recipe. I also looked one up on Allrecipes.com. The amounts I used are approximate:
3 cups shredded zucchini
3 large eggs
1-1/2 cups shredded low-fat cheese
Italian bread crumbs (enough to soak up the excess liquid)
Combine all ingredients. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Add a bit of olive oil to the griddle--just enough to keep the patties from sticking. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the zucchini mixture onto the griddle. Cook until golden brown, then flip over and do the same to the other side. Serve with warmed marinara.
These definitely fit the prescribed bill. And . . . the kids liked them.
So, I got to thinking, "What if we could start a beginning of the homeschool McLinky to share easy, quick, healthy lunch recipes.
Of course, that set me into a search on how to make blog buttons and how to set up a McLinky. I have a feeling there are a couple of bugs, but, hey, it's my first try.
Come join me. Add your recipe, and link up.
