Contest-Winning Zucchini Pancakes

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

    These were actually pretty good! I would make them again. A fun way to use up zucchini.

    Good basic recipe. I added two tablespoons of chopped green onion, and served them with a dollop of French onion dip. Excellent!

    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.

    I had aprehensions about this recipie but with so much zucchini, I had to try. I was pleasantly surprised. They were even good with syrup.
