Zucchini Fritters Recipe (Great Alternative to Tater Tots!)

Zucchini Fritters Recipe

I’ve worked hard to help my children learn to love most vegetables at an early age, and for the most part, they eat almost any vegetable plain, roasted, or in a dish, but I also enjoy finding new and fun ways to prepare vegetables for our family.

Tater tots were a very occasional treat when I was growing up, and these zucchini fritters are similar to tater tots or hash browns in taste but are more nutritious. They are also very simple to make and reheat well and leftovers are great in omelets or with an over-easy egg for breakfast!

I serve with homemade ketchup for the kids and I like them topped with an over easy egg.
