I love Girls Night Out.
You really need it from time to time.
Recently we’ve switched girls night out…
To Girls Night In.
We gather at someone’s house…
Everyone brings a dish.
And a bottle…
And then we really dish.
And you know me…being Ma and all.
I have to try and make the best offering.
This is my latest…
It was a hit!
Had to take advantage of all that zucchini in the garden…
Not to mention the boys gobbled these up…
And didn’t even know they were loaded with veggies!
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 medium to large zucchini grated
2 T grated red onion
1 cup corn off the cob (I slice mine from leftover grilled corn)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
6 – 8 T flour
1 t baking powder
1 T butter
Chopped Scallions or chives
WHAT TO DO:
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
In a large bowl combine zucchini, onion, and corn.
Stir in your eggs.
Add about 5-6 tablespoons of flour, the baking powder, and S&P. (If the batter gets too thin from the zucchini liquid, add the remaining flour.)
Heat a large pan over medium heat and melt 1/2 tablespoon butter and 1/2 tablespoon oil together in the pan. When it’s hot lower the heat to medium-low and drop heaping soup spoons of the zucchini batter into the pan.
Cook the pancakes until browned on each side…about 2 minutes apiece.
Remove from pan and set aside on a sheet pan…you can keep warm in the oven. They’ll stay warm in the oven for up to 30 minutes.
Top with a dollop of creme fraiche, a bit of smoked salmon, some scallions and a caper.
