  • 2 large (100g) eggs

  • ½ teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ cup (56g) “Kraft” reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Layer a sheet pan with parchment paper.

  2. Line a colander with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel. Place grated zucchini in the colander. Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt. Let rest for 10 minutes.

  3. After 10 minutes, gently squeeze excess liquid from the zucchini. Set aside.

  4. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, eggs, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt.

  5. Fold in the grated zucchini and shredded cheddar cheese until just combined.

  6. Portion 6 zucchini fritters out onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Lightly press into 3-inch wide circles.
