Got this recipe from the best Auntie in the world. Love them!
I was intrigued by this, and had to try it. LOVED it! I did not have the onion I thought I did - but had some shallots that needed to be used up. I also threw in a couple cloves of minced garlic. I did have trouble getting them to cook through - so I just spread them out thin. [I think that was me - it's been a long time since I've made pancakes!] Can't wait to make these again! OH! These made GREAT breakfast "sandwiches," with egg, turkey, grated cheese, and avocado!Read More

Phenomenal! My 11 month old couldn't get enough of these delicious "pancakes." I was in a hurry so I didn't measure exactly...a little more zucchini, a little less cheese, no onion so I just threw in some garlic powder. I used 1 serving of "Biscuit Baking Mix" recipe from this site instead of 1 cup of Bisquick, subbing olive oil for the shortening. Next time I'll probably use sharper cheese, more garlic, or actually use the onion. Thanks, Tricia!
These were a huge hit at our house. My 17 month old couldn't get enough. Next time I would serve them with marinara sauce for the kids to dip. I did freeze some for later use and they held up great. Put in the microwave until warm and then toasted them for a bit to crisp them up.
Awesome recipe! I've also spiced it up too...To mix the egg, I put the 2 in the blender with the onion, 2 garlic cloves and a tablespoon or so of hot portugal peppers, blended, then added to the mix. Also added salt & pepper. Will definitely add more hot pepper next time, but it was great. Served them with sour cream mixed with garlic, salt & pepper. Great side dip. Will definitely make these again.
Followed recipe except substituted some garlic for the onions (allergy). I used the "Homemade Biscuit Mix" from this site and scaled it down to 5 servings to fit this recipe. Shredding the zucchini in the food processor made quick work of it. I found that on medium heat, my pancakes were very brown on the outside but not quite cooked on the inside so I turned down the heat and cooked them longer. I might spread them out more next time to make them thinner and cook on medium heat. They were very tasty with quite a delicate flavour however, next time I'm going to add salt, pepper and a few spices and see how they turn out. Thanks, Tricia for a new way to use up my garden zucchini.
This recipe is surprisingly super tasty! The flavor reminds me of the Onion Bagels sold at Einsteins Bro. Bagels. I was really skeptical, even with all the positive reviews that were posted! I made the recipe exactly as stated, and these turned out really well! My 14-month old loved them, and I even turned them into a sandwich with lunch meat mesquite chicken and kraft singles in between two of the pancakes. I bet they'd even be good as a McMuffin type-style, with sausage patties, eggs, and cheese in between two of the pancakes. Overall these were great and I'll make them again!
Made these as stated using last years frozen shredded zucchini. They were very tasty, though I would recommend other reviewers suggestions to spread them thin when cooking. I also think that fresh zucchini would make for a better texture. All the same they were delicious, we served them with home made tzatziki but could have just as easily enjoyed them plain! Thanks for a great recipe!
This is the first savory, not sweet, pancake recipe i have tried and it was fabulous. I couldn't stop eating them as i was making them!I made them to go with a chowder i was making and they were good dipped in the soup. Good way to use up zucchini.
I accidentally doubled the cheese and they were divine! My kids devoured them! I made a quadruple batch and froze some. We just reheat in the toaster and they taste great!
These are now a weekly staple for us.
I happened to have all these ingredients. So I thought I'd try it. I was surprised at how well they turned out. Thanks for this simple recipe !!!
really quick and easy, I was worried that since there was no milk in it that it would be too heavy. they were light and tasty. i added OLd Bay tm seasoning and they had a crabcake flavor. i thnk i had three cups of zuchinni but it was fine even with the 1 cup of baking mix
These were really delicious and simple to prepare. They only took about 12 minutes to make. Garnishing them with sour cream and sriracha made them even more delicious! They really tied the flavors in the dish together.
Made for dinner tonight. Used garlic powder and onion powder instead. Also made them on my waffle maker. Cooked thoroughly and didn't have to hover over it. Will make again, but looking for some type of sauce to use on top.
These were great! We are not lovers of green veggies, but if I hadn't made them myself, I wouldn't have even known they were zucchini based. I enhanced them to suit our tastes with a tiny amount of shredded potato and more than one type of cheese, but they'd have probably been just as good without those minor changes.
These were delicious! I made two substitutions (whole grain baking mix for the Bisquick and 1 teaspoon of onion powder for the grated onion). To gild the lily further, we ate them with a dollop of plain greek yogurt on the side. I will definitely make these again.
Before I make these, how do I eat them, with syrup or any other suggestions!
These are terrific and so easy to make! My husband was willing to only try a bite at first, but then had four pancakes. I tried them with both sour cream and cream cheese and I can't decide which way was better, but they are also great alone. Will definitely make this again. I needed to use a zucchini or I'd end up throwing it out and this was perfect. I didn't have a fresh onion on hand so I substituted the half onion with just under 2 tbsp onion flakes. Thanks for sharing.
I WILL MAKE THESE FOREVER.
These were great! I made them with gluten free biscuit mix and added garlic powder, turmeric, salt & freshly ground black pepper
So good we cooked these instead of potato latkes this year.
Delish! (I used the 'Homemade Biscuit Mix' on this site)and added a little salt and pepper to the batter. Reminds me of the Corn Fritters mom used to make. In fact, you could easily sub corn for the zucchini. They fry up nice and crisp. Add a dollop of sour cream. Yum!
I can't get over how good this is!!! Instead of using a griddle I just used a pan with some oil in the bottom. It made them so crispy and delicious! Awesome recipe!
Marinara sauce is great on this
Added a bit of minced garlic and some salt and black pepper and these were delicious!
Love concept. Since I make everything from scratch, I did not have baking mix. I substituted 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Did everything else as listed in recipe. Followed advice of some reviewers to add a kick and added 1/2 tsp Creole seasoning. Also used less than 1/4 cup per pancake and spread out thin. Will make again
These tasted great! I substituted half of the zucchini with shredded potatoes since my husband doesn't love zucchini. This recipe is a keeper for sure!
made them... man oh man are they just fantastic...I used onion powder because I hate onions and they were just soooooo good :)
Delicious! I added salt and pepper, but other than that it was perfect.
Absolutely love this recipe! Easy to make and change as wanted! Have eaten plain as well as with sour cream and salsa!
After seeing this yesterday we had to try today. Fry hot so they're crispy. Gave this 4 only because it does need the recommended garlic. We used garlic powder & it wasn't enough so next time we'll use more garlic powder or a whole garlic minced. Tried plain & w/sour cream as others suggested. Hubby & I both feel eating them free of anything was the best. Next time we make these I'd like to try using half the bath of dough & add other herbs or spices to give it a lift or jolt also.
I absolutely loved it. It has great flavor. it looks like real pancakes and i like cheddar. My fam really enjoyed it.
Simply delicious! Thank you!
Easy, tasty and uses a lot of zucchini.
This was so easy, the only thing I changed or should say added was, salt, pepper, garlic salt, chipotle chill pepper and Worcestershire sauce. They turned out excellent, will definitely makes these again.
YUM! Followed exactly the first time... Family (33, 7, 4, 3) LOVED them, even my non-pancake eaters. Since I had to mix up a second batch, I added more garlic, more zucchini, some Mrs dash onion n herb seasoning and wow! As long as I have zucchini, these pancakes will be in our meal rotation!
I added some green chilies and sustituted almond flour. They turneds out great!!
Yummy. My husband was less than thrilled to try zucchini pancakes. He was very pleasantly surprised and said he'd eat them again. Now, trust me, that's a compliment .
What a simple and delicious recipe! I prepared as instructed, and garnished with sour cream and sriracha, as suggested by another reviewer. The recipe yielded a baker's dozen. Thanks for this tasty recipe!
No changes. Loved it! Definitely make again, in fact tonight!
Didn't have onion so used dehydrated onions. Worked great.
A big hit! I added a 1/2 cup sweet corn, salt, pepper, and some paprika. Served with hot sauce and sour cream - fabulous! I made these for breakfast, but they would make a nice side dish too.
I did not make any changes to the recipe and loved it. I used Sriracha as a condiment. Will definitely make again.
excellent, will make again. recipe super easy to make.
Such an amazing recipe! I grow zucchini every year and I’m always trying to find good recipes to use it all up and this certainly helps! I used quite a sharp cheddar. I also don’t use pre-made biscuit mixes so I just used flour and added some salt, course pepper, and garlic powder. They came out great! I think next time I’ll make them smaller this made 6.
Awesomely delicious recipe!!! 5+ Stars rating if I could do more than 5 stars. Absolutely Delicious! Two changes I made for this recipe. 1) I shredded the Zucchini, (did not grate it) By shredding it, that added more of a crunchy delicious taste. 2) I did not cook the pancakes using vegetable oil (its bad for you anyways) I just used non-stick spray on the pan. If you follow what I did, it's absolutely delicious! You don't even need syrup, just a little butter. Enjoy! I'll be making these pancakes again, especially when the zucchini comes from my own garden.
This sounds like a strange recipe. However, I read all the comments and went for it. It was very good. I served it with a little pizza sauce and just a bit more cheddar cheese on top. I used gluten free flour, added baking powder and oil instead of the baking mix. The zuchinni I used was a larger one so I ended up putting in an extra egg and little more olive oil to thin the batter. I also added a pinch of salt and garlic powder. For the kids I would maybe put a little chopped up pepperoni on top too.
These were really delicious as stated
I love these- great way to use up those zucchini you missed in the garden and they got huge. I've used both fresh and thawed. Kids eat them with syrup; I just put butter- reminds me of potato pancakes. I also tried them this summer with chopped pepperoni and served with pizza sauce- huge hit with the kids!
I shredded the cheese & diced the onion. I also added salt & pepper & a bit of chopped garlic. Thinned them out & cooked them maybe 5min per side until browned based on previous reviews. I also served with sour cream mixed with garlic salt & pepper. My boyfriend & I both really enjoyed them, moreso than anticipated!
These are great. I don't use bake mis because it is very unhealthy, so I adapted with 1 cup of flour, 1 tsp of baking powder, 1/8 cup coconut oil, ans some salt. I squeezed out the water from the zucchini. My kid who doesn't like zucchini loved these.
Excellent.I served with a dollop of sour cream.
I wasn't impressed. I made the recipe exactly as stated and didn't really care for it, nor did my 2 teenage sons. The pancakes just didn't have much flavor. We tried adding seasoning and sour cream afterwards and although it made them better it wasn't enough to warrant making them again. Sorry guys, I just don't see where the 5 stars are coming from.
These were a great hit for brunch! I added some minced garlic and some black pepper...might try some other spices next time but were very good!!
Delicious! I didn't have any Bisquick so I made my own (1 cup whole wheat flour, 1.5 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt and 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, cut in), and I used green onions. Crisped up beautifully on my cast iron griddle. I served them with sour cream as they are more like a potato pancake than your traditional sweet pancake. YUM!!!
Delicious and so easy for a quick meal. I used Kodiak Cakes, power cakes. Love the taste and texture, plus they are packed with protein.
Ridiculously awesome. If I ever open a diner, this is the dish that’ll get em coming back for more. Top with some sausage gravy and a fried egg and you’re in breakfast paradise.
Delicious! I used to make these a lot in my single days so they bring back a lot of memories. I also used the homemade biscuit mix from this site. I will definitely remember this recipe. Thanks.
This was so good! I didn't have the baking mix, so I added 1 cup of flour, pinch of salt and about 1 tbs baking powder and it turned out great. Definitely will make again to sneak some veggies into my son's diet :)
This was a delicious recipe. I used pancake mix and had to add a tablespoon or so of milk to make it more liquid, otherwise no changes. I like spicy so may add finely chopped jalapeños next time.
I made this recipe for my 13 year old grandson and he loved it. We all enjoyed the pancakes. Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely make this again.
These are absolutely delicious !!!!! I fried them in Ghee instead of using vegetable oil. I served them with a dollop of sour cream with a side of tomatoes and cucumbers. I will be making them again this week. Thank You for the great recipe !
These were fantastic. I added an egg and used green onions. I served with butter and applesauce.
Followed the recipe exactly, cooked up perfectly.
sorry, but these were not good. overwhelming taste of bisquick and a waste of ingredients.
Great as is but I tried adding some real bacon bits and cayenne pepper flakes for a bit of a kick. My family really liked the bacon bits ( probably added 2 tbls) and the cayenne was nice too (1/2 tsp or according to taste).
We simply loved it, I made large pancakes in pan, it is quicker.
LOVE these! My 4 little ones even like them if I food process the onions ;)
Tried this recipe out and will be using it again for sure. Cooked them on the bbq on a griddle on a hot summer evening and paired with lamb sausage....excellent.
Best zucchini pancakes I’ve made so far. Must be the cheese... I replaced Bisquick with almond flour to make it gluten free - delisch!
My husband & I really enjoyed this pancakes. They are nice & light in texture & the cheese makes it taste better. Also easy to make.
Delicious taste. Had trouble cooking the patties. They did not look like the picture. But My kids loved them and they ate vegetables.
These were a great way to use up a zucchini. The kids made gross faces when I was making them, but ended up liking them and even asked for them for breakfast. Great for use as the bread for breakfast sandwiches the next morning with eggs and hot sauce. We ate them with sour cream and hot sauce for dinner. Husband ate 7 of them. I did add garlic to the recipe, but other than that, did not change anything. Great recipe.
I always follow these recipes as presented. My kids loved them, or said they did. I just doubled the recipe. Each one came out better than the previous one. Be careful of the cheese sticking at times, or, use a non-stick pan!
Made these for breakfast for young teen granddaughters. Left out the onion because I didn't think they'd liked them that way. One didn't finish hers, the other did but said it needed more cheese. (Next time I will use course shredded cheese). Brother LOVED them but did add butter to the tops. The jury is still out for me...next time I will make with the onion and course cheese...also, I add hot sauce to some dishes just to make them "sparkle", not to taste hot, and I did that here. I used silicone circles to keep the pancakes perfect. Stay tuned for next review...
They were really good. Too bad the kids didn't like them even though zucchini is my son's favorite vegetable.
Added some old bay seasoning, family loved them
This is a great way to enjoy zucchini from our garden. Topped with some salt, pepper, and sour cream they were a hit! We’ll be making these again for sure.
These were easy, my three boys loved them. The next time I make them, and I will, I might chop up the onion a little bit finer. I served them with sour cream and they were all immediately consumed. Very tasty.
Easy to make but a little bland. Next time I'll add salt and pepper, maybe a little garlic or cayenne to give it a little more zing.
will make again.
I used leftover spaghetti squash instead of zucchini. It came out awesome! Very easy recipe.
Like so many others said, these are great. I followed the recipe as written and wouldn’t change a thing. The kinda remind me of potato pancakes.
Followed the recipe exactly, spreading the batter thin on my electric griddle. Excellent & impressive. Just will need to remember to add salt & pepper to the batter next time.
Ok, I'm giving myself a 1 star review for this. I put the zucchini in my Ninja. DO NOT DO THIS! It made the zucchini very wet (even after I drained it). Next time I will grate by hand. The flavor was delicious but it was just too wet to fry so I ended up baking it.
I thought it was excellent! It could be a main dish for vegetarians (the eggs & cheese provide protein) but I opted to use it as a side dish with sauteed shrimp!
Great tasting. My family enjoyed it! They ate them as soon as they were done. ?? Will make again, but the onion will be omitted. ??
This is delicious. I went a little heavy on the cheese which turned out fine. you don't need to drain the zucchini for this recipe. I used my own pancake batter without adding liquid and used the 2 eggs instead of my usual one. It made 14 5 inch pancakes so I froze some and reheated them today and they were great. I bet this would make a great appetizer if you made mini pancakes.
Made this recipe as instructed just changed the bisquick it to bisquick gluten free pancake mix and taste great!
