Recipe courtesy Chef Harley French of the 5151 Cafe & Catering in Dallas, Tx. These quick & easy pancakes will be great with your favorite salsa. The estimated cost per serving is $1.00 Also a dollop of reduced-fat sour cream would be awesome with guacamole, of course - I know, it would raise the price slighly. ;)
- 1 cup fresh corn kernels (2 corn cobs)

Very good. I added some cayenne, cumin and chili powder to the potato mixture. Make sure you add the milk a little at a time as potatoes are different sizes and more or less may be needed to get the proper consistency. The cooling time is necessary to help firm things up too. I tried to cut some fat and only used a pam sprayed pan. I think using a bit more oil would have had better results. P.S. 1 cup of corn kernels is approximately 2 cobs of corn.
