Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG, this was the bomb! OMG, this was the bomb! You could shred these veggies in the food processor in a couple minutes, so I don't see what all the complaining was about. My first batch didn't want to stay together in the frying pan, so I added some more flour and everything was fine after that. (Not sure I managed to squeeze enough liquid out of veggies.) Anyway, after a test latke, added just a bit more salt, used more freshly ground pepper and added some of Emeril's seasoning blend--these were crispy bits of deliciousness. Even my 13 year old, who HATES zucchini admitted they were pretty good! We all agreed they were just as good w/o the sour cream...and they didn't need it, it just gave it a completely different flavor. Make sure you cook them so they are a little bit crispy--mine were probably a little darker than in Kraft's picture, but not burned at all. Yum! For the reviewers who complained about bitterness---that's not the recipe, that probably came from older zucchini. Use smaller ones since they'r

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Using the shredder on the food processor made these much easier to make. Using the shredder on the food processor made these much easier to make. I made these the size of a half dollar. I left off the sour cream and only topped them with salt fresh from the skillet. Other than the smell staying in my house for 2 days, these were perfect and easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are pretty darn good! These are pretty darn good!! I have made this recipe twice already. I eat mine with a little dab of sour cream and chopped chives and he eats his plain. I may try mine with a dab of Greek Yogurt next time instead of the sour cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was delicious. This recipe was delicious. My husband loved it. That doesn't happen often. There wasn't any leftovers. I would definetly make this again. I suggest using a food processor. I lot easier. Make sure your oil is hot.

They kinda fell apart, so maybe I made them too thin, and I might add a little extra flour next time, but the taste was great! And I felt so healthy eating them! I have a lot of zucchini (from friends), so I'm glad I found something besides zucchini bread to do with all of it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a hit I'm always on the lookout for creative ways to get my kids to eat veggies. My 19 month old made a face of 'what did you put in my mouth?!' and then I tasted it and realized it wasn't terribly desirable. I'm surprised at the strong reviews on this as I followed the recipe completely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck. Yuck. I made this for my brother-in-law and his family, and no one liked it. It was "bitter," and completely unedible without the sour cream. We ended up throwing them away. Aside from the taste, it was very time-consuming to make. I would not recommend this AT ALL.
