My family eats these all the time, and the pancakes don't even taste like they're full of fresh veggies. We especially like the cheese mixed in. —Peggy Roos, Minneapolis, Minnesota

"Excellent taste! I used 1 medium Zucchini to 2 medium potatoes & 3 medium carrots. I left out the corn because I did not have any. We absolutely loved these! Excellent taste combo. I did have some issues getting them crisp & I think I would do oven fried next time. But ohhh what a lovely taste! Thanks for the excellent recipe!"

"These are really good and freeze well too. The only changes I made was adding a generous dash of garlic powder and instead of frying, cooked them on our George Foreman Grill sprayed with Pam for Grilling. Done in no time and saved calories that frying would have added."

"I wonder if you could do these in the oven and avoid frying?"

"It's a good thing I "over estimated"'what I needed as these were gone very quickly. A nice twist on potato pancakes"

"My family liked this, but we would prefer a more even ratio of potatoes to zucchini. The amounts of corn and carrot were fine."

"Very tasty! I only had one zucchini and parm instead of cheddar, but this tasted great and came together well. Made too much for a family of four though, would cut in half next time, esp since they are fried in oil."

"I changed it up JUST a little - no onion (but used onion powder) added some garlic powder and used cheddar/jack and parmesan cheeses instead.. but LOVED it! Will definitely make this one again!"

"These must be tiny zucchini... Mine were larger (I guess) and needed 3 more potatoes, another carrot, and another egg to fill out the color. We couldn't taste the cheese, so we will leave it out next time. Took over an hour to cook everything though."
