Zucchini Fritters with Bacon and Yoghurt Sauce – A Recipe by The Tent

Zucchini fritters with bacon and yoghurt sauceI’m always on the hunt for recipes that adapt well to camping, particularly breakfasts.

I love a good bacon and egg fry up, but my preference is start the day with something a little more fresh and lite.

What a great start to a camping day. Packed full of vegie and protein with a natural yoghurt based sauce, these are not only delicious but nutritious as well. A good recipe for those mornings when your head might be a little bit “How’s your father” from a few too many drinks the night before. These simple little morsels are delicious and really easy to make at home or in a camping environment.

Smoked salmon would be an awesome accompaniment instead of the bacon in which case I would probably swap out the mint leaves for some dill instead. In fact, smaller sized versions of these would be an impressive afternoon nibbley.

In a bowl combine the zucchini, garlic, eggs, lemon zest, cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Preheat a non stick pan or your bbq plate, spray with olive oil. Cook mixture in batches (1/3 cup for each fritter) about two minutes each side or until slightly browned.

For the Sauce –

Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl add a tiny dash of water to thin the mixture and make it more sauce like. Mix well and pour over your fritters. Top with fried bacon,  fried cherry tomatoes and add a handful of fresh green leaves to the side.

Notes: It is necessary to squeeze the juice form the zucchini. Failure to do so will result in sloppy fritters that wont’ fry properly.

If you do not have a chux simply use a tea towel instead
