I harvested our very first zucchini from the garden this past week and while I was thinking of simply thinly slicing it and sauteing it in butter to go along with our center cut pork chops for dinner, I decided to experiment a little.

I won’t lie. When I offered dinner to my husband he looked at them like “what are you feeding me?”, especially when I told him they were zucchini pancakes. But, he pronounced them as far more delicious than he thought they’d be and said he’d love it if we had them again. That’s good, because tonight, I’m going to take whatever zucchini I have left over from making some zucchini bread and add the rest of the summer squash I shredded into a casserole earlier this week (hooray for the garden) and make zucchini/squash pancakes for dinner tonight. I’ll let you know how they go.

The nice thing about these is that you can substitute other vegetables. Try zucchini carrot pancakes or zucchini potato pancakes. You can’t go wrong with zucchini. (Can you tell, it’s one of my favorite vegetables?)
