These patties are great to enjoy for a weekend family dinner or you can take them along as a contribution to a group BBQ for something a little bit different. Make them in advance and store them in the fridge until you are ready to cook them. The cream cheese adds a lovely, subtle flavor and the zucchini adds a healthy vegetable element. Serve them up with some mashed potato on the side for an easy and healthy family meal.
