With the release of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 this week Sunday Supper is celebrating by cooking all things Greek!   I love Greek food and have recently been making a lot of it.  Some of my favorite things to make are lamb pita pockets, Greek salads, and Spanakopita.

Whenever I think of Greek food I think of feta cheese and lamb.   Since I didn’t have lamb in the freezer and there wasn’t any on sale this week I turned to my feta cheese to make a tasty dish.   I was actually looking for a side dish to enjoy on Good Friday when I saw these Greek Zucchini Fritters.   They sounded really good and easy so I gave them a try.

Everything you need to make Greek Zucchini Fritters

I liked that these fritters are oven baked instead of fried.  I’ve been eating healthier and baking my food instead of frying is one thing I always try to do.   The fritters are made with zucchini, scallions, feta cheese, lemon juice, and plenty of seasonings.   I mixed them up and dropped them on a baking sheet.

Greek Zucchini Fritters are an easy appetizer or side dish

They smelled wonderful as they were baking.  It was a combination of garlic, cheese, and vegetables.   They came out of the oven golden brown and crispy.   I couldn’t wait to try them dipped in Tzatziki sauce!

Tzatziki is a yogurt based sauce that is served with so many Greek dishes.  My favorite version is simply Greek yogurt, lemon juice, oregano, and cucumber.  It’s simple and perfect as a dipping sauce.  It paired wonderfully with these Zucchini Fritters.

Tired of the same old side dish? Make these Baked Greek Zucchini Fritters for something new!

The fritters were a tasty side dish but they would also be a great appetizer hot and fresh from the oven.

  1. Triple winner, Heather! Love that I can enjoy zucchini fritters which are baked and not fried. Of course the feta and Parmesan are pluses too! Delighted also that I can dip into a yogurt based dip.
