Zucchini Pancakes on New Day Cleveland
It was back to the studio today cook with my favorite television host, David Moss on New Day Cleveland! With Summer only a wink away, we went with a family favorite recipe, Zucchini Pancakes. This recipe is a special one to me. It is one my mom has been making for years and years and just the smell of them brings back so many special memories of vacation on the beach, in OBX and dining all together around a huge table, laughing and sharing stories. It is so cool how a simple recipe can do that to you! Food is so much more then just food!
Have I ever mentioned how much I love what I do? Goodness, talk about a rush! This is my 5th time on the show, and yet a part of me still can't believe that it is real. I truly am blessed. And now on to the recipe....
1/3 cup Bisquick
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 eggs slightly beaten
2 cups zucchini, shredded
chives, chopped (optional)
butter for frying
Mix first three ingredients. Stir in eggs until moist. Fold in zucchini. Fry patties until brown.
*I like to keep an oven proof dish in the oven on warm and put the pancakes in there as they cook. Just be sure to keep them loosely covered with foil so they don't shrink up or dry out. Diced tomatoes are also a nice addition. Just be sure to deseed them. You don't want a whole lot of tomato, just enough for flecks of color and a bit of flavor.
