    Is there a way to bake these and substitute the mayo?

    Tasted a bit like quiche. Excellent the next day, hot or cold, as breakfast.

    Old bay seasoning was overwhelming. I might go with half next time. Also, my cakes were very watery so they did not stick together so I dumped the whole thing into my fry pan and it came out looking like a big zucchini omelet, which wasn't bad, except for the seasoning.

    Instead of mayo, try Greek yogurt Anonymous. But 1 tsp won't be terrible (use the olive oil blend one). For gluten free, use the Udi's whole wheat bread (freezer section on most stores) to make the bread crumbs.

    @Brandy- While a select number of our recipes contain nutritional data, this is not something we currently offer for all recipes on the site. However, if you do a quick internet search you will find a number of websites that provide nutritional data calculators that will allow you to plug in recipes or ingredients and will calculate the nutritional information for you. A rough estimate of the nutritional data for this recipe would be approximately 221 calories 23 carbs 11g fat and 7g protein. Please note that this is just an estimate since I am a chef not a registered dietician or nutritionist.

    I made these for the first time last night. They turned out pretty good and plan on making them again. I made sure to squeeze the zucchini as recommended. I used about 8 paper towels. I mixed the bread crumb and scallions with the zucchini first before adding the egg. The consistency was perfect. I forgot the mayo and it still tasted good. eI didn't use the Bay Seasoning either because I have a toddler and was afraid the taste would be too strong based on comments. I omitted the Bay Seasoning because I have a toddler and I thought the flavoring might be too strong based on a comment. Next time I might add some shredded carrots and play with using different spices.
