Bleanies - Zucchini Potato Patties

My friend Karen shared this Polish recipe with me. The original recipe used only potatoes, but it is great way to use zucchini. My children actually ask for this recipe! Maybe it is the fun name!

Bleanies or Zucchini Potato Patties

1 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
1 1/2 cup peeled shredded potato
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 eggs, slightly beaten

Toss together zucchini, potato, onion, and flour. Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat small amount of oil in skillet. Drop  mixture into skillet to form patties. Fry both sides until golden.


  1. I make these except I don't use any potato! We enjoy them dipped in sour cream. Last time I added Mrs. Dash good!

  2. oh, these look so good! I am going to give them a try with yellow squash that's yielding prolifically in my garden!
    Thanks for sharing, Gina.

  3. Those do sound yummy! As a vegetarian, I am always looking for new side dishes (or any dishes!) to try. Thank you for the idea!


  4. Make these for supper tonight. Very good, thanks for sharing!

  5. Gina - I made these as a side for dinner tonight - SO good!! Excellent flavor - I added a sprinkle or two of garlic powder - just because ;-) My picky eater even had his share of them though he typically won't eat zucchini....a hit at our house! Thanks for sharing!

  6. This recipe sounds delicious. I must copy it, great way for me to use the zucchini in my freezer.


I love to hear from you.
