These little patties go with anything. They can be served with a salad for a main dish, as a snack or an appetizer. Make sure to serve these with Greek Style Yogurt. From Bon Appetit May 2007 Posting for ZWT IV. Greece.

I loved these, the feta inside gives it a little pop. Thanks for a great sidedish Made for ZwT6 for the xtra hot dishes Made these again for our lunch today and grated 1 carrot as well.mmmmm good
Delicious! I made it with Fish and Sour Cream Bake for a great supper! Tried it with the greek yogurt, and sour cream, and... gasp... ketchup. Loved it all! Made for ZWT #6!
These were very easy to make and very good. I used a mini food processor to grate the zucchini, so it took very little time or effort. I did have to add more flour to get it to stick together, but they turned out very nice. I will cook at a lower temp next time....I think my stove runs a little hot! Thanks for sharing.
