    I made this dish last night to rave reviews. The zucchini fries were fantastic, and even a hit with my very picky 11 year old son who will do anything to keep from eating any sort of vegetable whatsoever. My husband prepared the hamburger patties, adding his own selection of spices to punch up the flavor of the beef. Will definitely make this recipe again.
