In place of potato pancakes, try these cute rounds that are very simple to prepare with on-hand ingredients. Not only are they tasty, they're pretty, too. To eliminate some of the fat, I use a nonstick griddle coated with butter-flavored cooking spray. —Teressa Eastman El Dorado, Kansas

"We liked it the first time I made it. The second time I made it even better by adding fresh corn kernels that I cut from an ear of corn with a knife."

"I used to make these for my toddler for lunch, or even dinner. He loved them, plus they have so much nutritional value with the zucchini and eggs, etc. Besides, I loved eating them too. I just ate them plain, but sour cream sounds good. Wonderful blend of flavors."

"I really enjoy these pancakes for lunch when I'm alone. Its a wonderful way to use my frozen shredded zucchini. I also add cooked pork sausage to make them more substantial. It then becomes a meal in itself."
