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"
