Make these Zucchini Apple Fritters with Lemon Ricotta for a great appetizer recipe to share with friends and family. Add a generous dollop of this lemon ricotta for the perfect sweet and savory flavor balance.


For fritters:

  • 1 large apple, shredded & excess liquid removed
  • 1 cup zucchini, shredded & excess liquid removed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, for pan

For topping:

  • 1/2 cup whole milk ricotta
  • Zest of 1 lemon + juice of 1/2 lemon


Heat the Single Backsplash Griddle on medium-high heat with olive oil. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine to make fritter mixture. Take 1/4 cup of the mixture and form into a patty, placing directly on hot griddle, repeating with remaining batter. Cook 3 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned. Place cooked fritters on a paper towel to soak up excess oil. Working quickly, whip the ricotta, lemon juice and zest with a spatula until smooth. Serve warm with a dollop of lemon ricotta on the fritters and sprinkle with extra fresh thyme. Makes 6 patties
