ZUCCHINI GRILLED CHEESE

ZUCCHINI GRILLED CHEESE
Ingredients:
·         2 c. grated zucchini
·         1 large egg
·         1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan
·         2 green onions, thinly sliced
·         1/4 c. cornstarch
·         kosher salt
·         Freshly ground black pepper
·         Vegetable oil, for cooking
·         2 c. shredded Cheddar

Directions:
1.       Squeeze excess moisture out of zucchini with a clean kitchen towel. In a medium bowl, combine zucchini with egg, Parmesan, green onions and cornstarch. Season with salt and pepper.
2.       In large skillet, pour enough vegetable oil to layer the bottom of the pan. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the zucchini mixture onto one side of the pan and shape into a small square. Repeat to form another patty on the other side.
3.       Cook until lightly golden on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat to drain on paper towels and repeat with remaining zucchini mixture. Wipe skillet clean.
4.       Place two zucchini patties in the same skillet over medium heat. Top both with shredded cheese, then place two more zucchini patties on top to form two sandwiches. Cook until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes per side.

5.       Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.

*I have used different cake mix sizes from 15.25 oz to 18.25 oz and they all seem to work just fine. You won’t need to adapt the other ingredients.
Mix ins can be whatever you want to mix into the cookies – coconut, chocolate chips, chopped candy bars, etc. The possibilities are endless!
