Zucchini and Potato Pancakes

I found this recipe years ago while searching for new ways to use vegetables from our garden. My family really enjoys these delicious pancakes.

    I make these as an appetizers for my partiesThey are always a big hit. I make them ahead and warm in oven. Also serve with sour cream with a hint of basil.

    Made a double recipe, added a grated carrot (my idea) and more spice as suggested in comments, and turned mixture into a casserole coated with cooking spray. Baked mixture into a Swiss rosti pancake in a 350 oven for 40 minutes. Love the taste! Pancake is nice and moist. I served it with scallion sour cream.

    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.
