Zucchini patties/casserole

This is lacto-ovo and is a greek recipe.

3 zucc grated
1/2 c chopped onion
3 oz feta
2 T parmesan
2 eggs
2 T coconut flour
2 t EVOO
sprinkle of dried oregano (original called for fresh parsley, oregano, dill but none available. Use whatever sounds good. I only like dill in pickles.)
black pepper (freshly ground is best)

Mix everything together and pan fry as patties or pour into a buttered/oiled casserole dish. Bake at 375-400 for 25 min. Test as for custard.

*Original recipe used bread crumbs (1/2-3/4 cup).
Also important to know that the cheeses are quite salty so no need for more.

This sounds good.
Thanks for the recipe. I'm always looking for ways to use coconut flour.

Old post, but sounds good. This is a low carb version of Kolokithopita which is Greek Zucchini Pie and includes a top and bottom crust of phyllo dough.

PACarolsue...good to see you here.

I'm glad you bumped this recipe cuz I had forgotten about it. Now I gotta get some squash and try it.

I made a small 2-serving sample of this today to try, to see if I wanted to make it for a Holiday side dish. It's a winner!! Mine was slightly different, as a recipe I saw online wisked some plain greek yogurt in with the eggs, and I used regular flour, since I didn't have coconut flour. I used all Feta and no Paramesan, and IMO if you "accidentally" add too much feta it will not hurt it one bit!!

Ok, so this was so delicious and I wish I had more. It's the Feta cheese that makes the difference I think. A different taste. I am going to try this again. Less flour, or omit the flour, to make it lower carb. Bake it in a muffin tin like the egg muffins everyone used to make. I think I could freeze them and just microwave one when I wanted it. I could even make a bunch of them for appetizers at a party. I don't know what would work better...shredding the zucchini or leaving it in the 1/2 inch cubes.

No such thing as too much feta!

Since I already make zucchini patties with chickpea flour, maybe I'll omit the egg and make these patties.

I didn't have quite the aversion to eggs when I made this before but I was close...already couldn't stand HBE due to gag reflex.

Jem, I don't know if any of these would work for you, but here is a list of things you can substitute for egg. Actually, they might turn out fine as patties without any egg or substitute.

What is a good substitute for eggs?

Ener-G Egg Replacer - follow directions on box.

2 tablespoon cornstarch = 1 egg

2 tablespoon arrowroot flour = 1 egg

2 tablespoon potato starch = 1 egg

1 heaping tablespoon soy powder + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg

1 tablespoon soy milk powder + 1 tbsp cornstarch + 2 tbsp water = 1 egg.

1 banana = 1 egg in cakes.

1 tablespoon milled flax seed and 3 tbsp water = 1 egg. Light, fluffy cakes!

3 tablespoon peanut butter = 1 egg

1 tablespoon agar agar = 1 egg

1 tablespoon chia seeds + 1/3 cup water = 1 egg. Mix it up then let sit for 15 minutes before using. (thickens)

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce = 1 egg

I typically use a flax or chia egg. Aquafaba works but I don't always have it. I find that pumpkin, applesauce, bananas, sweet potato and such work to replace but don't have the holding power of egg.

My flour mix I'm using is almond flour and potato or tapioca starch which work well for holding things together.

I made this recipe and they are delicious. Even my wife loved them and she's not a big veggie eater.

I used yellow squash instead of zucchini and I didn't have feta, so I grated up some pepper jack cheese and used that, probably a little more than 3oz cuz I hardly measure.
Then I put them in the muffin top pan. I got a full pan of 6 and baked them up until golden brown. They were so good. I have 3 leftover to add to tomorrow nights dinner, so I'll post how they worked out heated up later.

Thank you for this recipes, jem51. Its a winner!!

Nigel, muffin top pan? Or muffin pan? I have both but intended to use the muffin pan.

I have a pic, if I can figure out how to upload it from my phone.

Ok, I used my wife's account--clik on the link for a pic.

I used a muffin top pan.

Ok, they look good! I will use my muffin top pan since right now I don't have as much zucchini and will try regular muffins another time. I bought the muffin top pan to use to make Oopsie Rolls and never got around to that. LOL
