Connie's Zucchini 'Crab' Cakes

Are you exploding with zucchini's out of your ears? Well have I got a recipe for you! Connie's zucchini 'crab' cakes were awesome. Although they claim to taste like crab, I didn't think they did BUT they did taste great in their own way. I followed some popular review on allrecipes.com and instead of frying them, baked them in a 400°F oven for 15 minutes ON EACH SIDE. I also used Panko bread crumbs on mine since they needed to be used up. Mine also needed another egg. So what if I changed the recipe a bit, that's what good chefs do right??

Connie's Zucchini 'Crab' Cakes

2 1/2 cups grated zucchini
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup minced onion
1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning TM
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying

1. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, egg, and butter or margarine. Stir in seasoned crumbs, minced onion, and seasoning. Mix well.
2. Shape mixture into patties. Dredge in flour.
3. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until hot. Fry patties in oil until golden brown on both sides.

Here are the results:

Not the best picture I've ever taken, but it's a work in progress.
