This zucchini-potato fritter recipes has been passed on through generations of our Austrian side of the family, and is loved by numerous children – big and small. Last summer we made it under grandpa’s guidance, in a couple of variations. Whereas potatoes form the basis of this nutritious dish, you can experiment with different fillings such as cheese and bacon.
