Cheesy Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini just happens to be my favorite vegetable.  I eat zucchini year round.  But I especially love when it is season for the summer and I am looking for ways to use all of the garden zucchini up.  Zucchini is an amazing vegetable.  It can be used to create savory recipes, but it can also be used to bake with and sneak it into something sweet.  I have loved making savory recipes with it lately.  Zucchini fritters have been on my list for a long time now and I can’t believe that I am just getting around to making them.  We LOVED everything about these little fritters especially the cheese!  They are filled with three cheeses which bring these zucchini fritters to the next level.
