Flecks of zucchini give these savory, moist pancakes a pretty appearance. For a suppertime side dish, field editor Leann Meeds of Klamath Falls, Oregon suggests topping them with spaghetti sauce and Parmesan cheese.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:3 servings


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion

"Great recipe. I used my fresh basil instead of oregano and will omit salt next time."

"I made these for lunch yesterday and I couldn't stop eating them. I followed the recipe as written only the cheese I used was a Parmesan-Romano blend. Go easy on the salt since the cheese is quite salty. I'm going to make some more today and am thinking of throwing in some chopped fresh basil from my garden. I topped the pancakes with low fat sour cream, but I've been thinking a homemade tomato sauce would be good if you're serving these for dinner. I just saute a chopped onion in some olive oil until soft (not brown), add a couple of minced garlic cloves and cook just for a minute or two. Then I add about two pounds of peeled, seeded, and chopped fresh tomatoes (Roma or plum tomatoes work well). Salt and pepper to taste. Cook over medium-low heat until cooked down and thickened. I usually add some whole basil springs near the end and remove them before serving. (Your kitchen will smell so good!) I know this sounds like a lot of work, but you can make the sauce ahead. It will keep for a few days in the refrigerator and it's also great on pasta with a good sprinkling of Parmesan."

"I reduced oregano and mayo slightly, served with Prego Baby Portabello spaghetti sauce. A triple batch feeds our family of 7. Very good!"
