An easy way to add healthy veggies is by preparing these Zucchini Corn Fritters for breakfast.

Why are zucchini corn fritters soggy?

Too much moisture will result in soggy and not crispy fritters. Lay grated zucchini out in a single layer or place it in a colander. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Place grated zucchini in a cheesecloth or a thin dish towel and strain until all the moisture comes out.
