28 Aug Cheesy Zucchini Pancakes
What do you do with a zucchini of monstrous proportions? That was my dilemma when my in-laws generously gave us a zucchini that must have weighed five pounds (or at least it felt that way).
Did I mention that the zucchini looked like a duck? Needless to say that cutting it up felt a bit creepy.
After getting over my initial uneasiness, I had enough grated zucchini to make two batches of pancakes and two loaves of my double chocolate zucchini bread.
I found several recipes for zucchini pancakes and loved the one by Ina Garten. This version is tweaked as I added an extra egg to bump up the protein, and aged cheddar to make them savoury. Also, I used whole wheat flour to soak up the liquid from the zucchini.
Have you made zucchini pancakes before? How else do you use up large amounts of zucchini?
