What a wonderful side dish these little pancakes are. The garlic and onion flavors were a perfect match for the mild zucchini. They fried up beautifully and were served with a very small dolop of sour cream. We enjoyed these very much, and they will be on my table again, especially in the summer when the squash are plentiful. Thanks, Barbara for sharing another of your wonderful recipes.

Great little recipe.

I have made this 3x now. Once for me, once for a party and once for my neighbor.
I made it as is, and it is very good. Personally for me, it needed a bright color or flavor.

So, for me, I added fresh garlic each time, because I just am not fond of powdered garlic (just my tastes); but I added some fresh parsley and a little lemon zest. It was great

Another time, I again added fresh garlic; but I added parsley and just a little roasted red pepper, NOT much, just a bit for some color and a bit of sweetness.

The last time, I added fresh garlic again, chives and parsley.

So, all three are still very simple, but they are so good and easy. I had to up the Bisquick a bit, but that was my fault. My eggs were jumbo so I added a bit more zucchini and therefore more Bisquick. but I think one just needs to adjust if they need a bit more. They fry up very easy and quickly.

I served with a dollop of sour cream with fresh scallions (white and green parts) fine chopped. It was a great side dish. Definitely make again.
