That sounds so yummy!!!! With the atkins diet I am really trying to stay below 10g carbs. I think that this would be a great breakfast with maybe a piece of bacon or a cheese omlet. Thanks

This was really good, but I think next time I might do it without the eggs. And I served it for dinner, so that was kind of weird. I guess I wasn't expecting it to turn out so much like a breakfast food.

flavor was ok, but too much egg. It really ended up being like a zucchini omlette. I will also try without egg or half the egg amount.

Hi! I'm new, I have had this recipe for years, my friend's husband is Lebonese & he made them for us (& shared the recipe). I love them & YES they do help with potato cravings. Thanks for reminding me of them.

How do you shred the zuchini? Peal it first and then use a grater?

Flavor was lovely but like a zucchini omlette. I am going to try with half the egg or using just egg white next time.

Taking into account the other comments about too much egg, I used 1 1/2 cups shredded zucchini and 1/4 chopped onion. (I just put them in my mini processor.) Tasted slightly bland, so I added in a few Tbsp grated parmesean cheese, too. I tried it with 1 egg, but it didn't stick together in the pan. 2 eggs worked perfectly and made a dozen small hash browns. They tasted great!
