'Tis the season when everyone gives you zucchini--and you need yet another recipe to use it up! Enjoy this very tasty recipe!

2 c. shredded zucchini
2 eggs
¼ c. finely chopped onion
1 T. flour
1/3 c. Italian bread crumbs
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Combine shredded zucchini with a sprinkle of salt and drain in colander about ½ hour.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Add onion, flour, bread crumbs, cheese and well-drained zucchini. Mix to distribute ingredients evenly.

Heat about 1 T. oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop zucchini mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls. Cook for a few minutes on each side until golden.
