Soo good! I added a pinch of pepper and used a grated sweet onion then put on the grill like a regular pancake. It only made 6 regular size pancakes so it left us wishing we had more! Read More

Hmmm...these are a solid no for me. I did drain the zucchini as recommended and other than that I followed the recipe. I also used freshly grated parm. These are too soft, I was expecting a crispier texture and it needed a little something extra to juxtapose all the savory elements. I did try several batches and although they came out with varying textures the flavor remained the same and at its base that's what I'm not a fan of. Glad to see other people liked this! Read More

This was pretty good. I did as suggested in other reviews and added some herbs/spices. The flavor was definitely there, but it was more cakey than I would have liked, I think there was too much batter. I think next time I make it, I will leave out one egg and half of the flour so the zucchini is really the star. Also, a tip whenever using zucchini - shred the zucchini and toss it with a bit of salt, then leave in a colander over a bowl in the fridge for 30-60 minutes, when you take it out from the fridge, squeeze the zucchini, and you'll be amazed how much water comes out.

DELICIOUS! I squeezed my zucchini dry instead of using the paper towels and added some garlic powder and black pepper to the mix. Also, I ised vidalia onion instead of green b/c that's what I had on hand. These came out great! Will def be making these again! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

I just tried this - yummy! Really excited to find this to use up some zucchini and really enjoy it! I did amend this by adding more onion and cheese - then some parsley a touch of garlic powder and pepper. They fried up wonderfully and were very tasty thank you for sharing! Read More
