Ingredients: 4 servings

2 potatoes (1 pound), cleaned

3/4 zucchinis (10 ounces), washed

2 eggs

5 tablespoons grated parmesan

2 tablespoons finely chopped thyme, if fresh, one and half if dried.

fresh bread crumbs, as needed

Salt and pepper, as needed

Oil for frying as needed



Boil potatoes in salted water, until tender. Drain them, peel and mash, or pass through a potato ricer. Grate fresh zucchinis into a bowl: add mashed potatoes, salt, 1 egg, parmesan, some pepper, thyme. Stir to combine. Divide mixture into small portions, shape each portion into ball, then press lightly to form patty. Place the other egg in a bowl, whisk with some salt to blend. Place breadcrumbs on a large plate. Coat patties first in egg, then in breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere. Heat oil in a large skitter over medium heat. Working in two batches, cook patties until slightly brown, a few minutes per side.
