    delicious. had some trouble figuring out the heat setting in the absence of a cast-iron pan (used a nonstick skillet), but i think that was user error rather than the recipe. turned out a little more oilly than ideal but still crispy on the outside and soft inside!

    Easy and good. I've made them 3 times. Today I used preserved lemon in the yogurt because I didn't have fresh. As an additional garnish I like pepper jelly or Sriracha.

    These turned out awesome for some leftover zucchini that we had from making bread. The lemon idea from another reviewer will certainly be tried the next time we make these.

    Wonderful! Quick and easy to make used onion powder instead just f scallions, as I didn’t have any and used a homemade ranch dressing for dip. Definitely making again!!

    I added some lemon 🍋 to the batter, but followed the recipe to the T other than that. Perfect for lunch, not too filling.

    we are not fans of zucchini at my house but I've been determined to find a way to make it taste good. my daughter actually loved this recipe, especially the sauce. draining the zucchini is a necessary step!

    Amazing! The only thing I’ll do differently next time is double the recipe and make them a bit larger. I will for sure be making these bad boys again!

    We tried this and loved it! Our personal preference is to add a bit of shredded cheese to the mixture. We also didn’t let it drain enough because we are just impatient! :)

    Absolutely great taste. Used 30gr flour to lighten them up, and added a bit of crushed black pepper and salt to the other ingredients of the sour cream dip

    Extremely delicious & loved the fact that there was little flour.

    These were amazing! Definitely looking forward to having them again. We used it to replace pasta. Had meatballs and spaghetti sauce on top.

    I did like it, especially that zucchini is not my favorite vegetable.

    We have made these since I was a kid. Always added parmesan cheese to them as well. The parm adds a lot of flavor. And I top with applesauce.

    It was delicious! I didn't think it would be as tasty as it was. Definitely a redo!

    Pretty tasty! But definitely needed to pat some of the oil off after frying. The topping was amazing and zesty! Will make this again for sure after investing in some cheesecloth

    A new staple for sure! Unfortunately mine did not come out as crispy as it should have, but this is likely due to my not getting enough moisture out of the zucchini in the beginning.

    Absolutely delicious, they came out perfect! I substituted the sour cream for Greek yogurt when it came to the dip.

    Great. Although I added a little garlic powder and fresh thyme to give it a bit more flavor. Easy and a great use for the abundant zucchini from our garden in the summer.
