Zucchini Fritters & Goat Cheese Sauce

4 reviews / 5 average

This is the apron that my husband wore last night.

It was a logical choice; it’s clearly the most masculine apron that I own. I knew he would enjoy the burlap style fabric. And Italia? That’s kewl. He’s kewl.

He went to go put the apron on. He stopped. Set down the apron. Walked to the window and closed the shades. I reconsidered asking for a picture.

Now, to the ultimate question: Why?

Someone needed to bravely confront the hot, splattering oil that was far too intimidating dangerous for this girl. Yes, indeed. He’s a hero like that.

And because of his heroism, we were able to enjoy these golden, crispy zucchini fritters.

I think Bjork would even say that these fritters were worth his short stint with Italia.

These little crispers were delicious! And dipped in creamy goat cheese sauce… ahhh. Perfection.

Now, if you are thinking to yourself, Those look yummy, but it sounds too hard. STOP! It only sounds hard. It is so easy! If my pictures aren’t inspiring you, click on the blog link below and be inspired.

    I finally found the blog I’ve been waiting for and I’ve begun reading from post 1!! This post, however, is my first favorite. I just LOVE zucchini, just finished eating it sautéed with my dinner as a matter of fact. But goat cheese must be one of my favorite cheeses ever. AND, we just got a deep fryer for Christmas! So when I use your recipe to make what seems like a terrific snack, I’ll be sure to let you know just how good it tastes 🙂 So looking forward to reading more!

    I JUST made these for brekky and they are sensational! I did add some danish feta and lime juice in leu of lemon zest and still I have a very happy household (just my fiancé and I but still) You know when he says “what am I even eating?!” that you’re on to a winner 🙂

    I really like this post! I “discovered” your blog about a year ago. Was inspired to start my own. Obviously anybody seeing your blog now probably only sees how much success you have had. But this first post, it goes to show that every blogger started from somewhere. It’s really inspiring to see how far this blog has come over the years.

    These comments are cracking me up. I realized that this must be an old PoY recipe when Bjorn was featured! And, here I sit, waiting for the cakes to cool and eating the goat cheese out of the bowl while no one is watching. I know I don’t need to wait to try it to leave a review– I’ve never had a bad reciepe from you guys!
