Ok, so the photo might look like it came from a faded menu but these are really good. They take about 30 minutes from start to table and can be a meal in themselves or used as a side dish.
1 medium baking potato or 2-3 Yukon Gold potatoes
1 8"-9" yellow squash, zucchini or crook-neck are good
1 small onion
3 Tbsp flour (whole wheat preferred)
Salt (or salt substitute)
Oil or vegetable spray (PAM)
Putting it together:
Grate potato, squash and onion into a bowl. You can use a hand grater or a food processor. I like to use a mix of fine and coarse grated veggies.
Add egg, flour and seasonings (to taste). Mix well.
Heat oil, we prefer a blend of canola and olive oil, or vegetable spray in a frying pan or on a griddle using a medium high temperature. Place serving spoon sized dollops of the mixture onto the pan and flatten. Brown the pancakes on each side until heated through. About 4-5 minutes or so per side Place on a paper towel to remove any oil if used.
Tasty on their own, but you can add additional salt and pepper, sugar, parmesan cheese (we like that) applesauce or sour cream to taste.
Makes about 7 - 9 4"-5" pancakes.
