Zucchini and Potato Pancakes Recipe

I found this recipe years ago while searching for new ways to use vegetables from our garden. My family really enjoys these delicious pancakes.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 10 min./batch YIELD:4 servings


  • 3 cups shredded zucchini (about 2 medium)
  • 1 cup shredded peeled potato (1 medium)
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil, divided


  • 1. In a sieve or colander, drain the zucchini and potato, squeezing to remove excess liquid. Pat dry; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, flour, baking soda, salt and pepper. Stir in eggs until blended. Add the onion, garlic and zucchini mixture; toss to coat.
  • 2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into oil. Fry in batches until golden brown on both sides, using remaining oil as needed. Drain on paper towels. Yield: 1 dozen.

"I really enjoyed these, but my boyfriend and a friend of ours said they were bland. Next time, I'll add seasoned salt, and possibly a packet of hidden valley ranch dressing powder to add some more seasoning."
