Zucchini Cakes for Breakfast

Zucchini Cakes for Breakfast

I have discovered out that my zucchini cakes make a great cook-ahead item for breakfast.

I’m having some food allergies and other health issues, so wheat is off the menu for the time being. That means I needed an alternative to toast or biscuits to sop up my eggs yolks. The zucchini cakes are perfect, and I like them better than hash browns. I heat two in the oven topped with some butter, and serve them topped with fried eggs.

Zucchini Cakes

These zucchini cakes are similar to latkes. They make a good side dish or snack. I glop on some butter before reheating them in the oven, and they reheat well. They are yummy topped with homemade ranch dressing. The cheese is optional because I did not notice a huge difference in the flavor with or without cheese. I expected it to make a bigger difference.


Green onions
Cheese (optional)
Rice flour
Bacon grease

Grate your zucchini, wrap it in a towel, and squeeze out as much water as you can. Chop up green onions, garlic, and parsley in a small food processor. You can do it by hand if you have to. Beat your egg or eggs in a mixing bowl. Add everything except the bacon grease, and mix well.

Heat the bacon grease in an iron skillet. You’ll want it to be about ¼ inch deep or so. When the grease is hot, spoon or ladle your zucchini mixture in, about ¼ cup at a time, and flatten. Flip when the bottom is browned and brown the other side. Remove to paper towel-lined plate to drain excess grease.
