Cover - Keto Squash Zucchini Fritters

Potato pancakes can be a thing on keto; just use a “faux-tato” or a combination.

Spoiler alert from the title:  these keto fritters are made with zucchini and/or squash … NOT cauliflower!  The key to a good keto recipe is coming up with creative solutions that don’t get boring … #hackyourfood

Check out my other fun keto recipes like my Radish au Gratin or Pizza 5 Ways.

One breakfast this week inspired me to create some sort of “keto hashbrown” or “keto potato pancake” using a new method.  It’s limited inventory at the grocery store right now because of the Coronavirus, so I’m just grabbing whatever and making it work.

Note: you do not need to “be keto” for my recipes.  Most of my recipes are low-carb, not only high-fat.
