Yellow Squash - Potato Pancakes Recipe

By
Real Estate Agent with Lanier Partners

Yellow Squash-Potato Pancakes by Mike SaundersOk, 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.

Ingredients:

1 medium baking potato or 2-3 Yukon Gold potatoes

1 8"-9" yellow squash, zucchini or crook-neck are good

1 small onion

1 egg

3 Tbsp flour (whole wheat preferred)

Pepper

Garlic Powder

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.

Serve:

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.

I make the potato ones all the time but never thought of squash.  We have our first garden this summer and we have lots of squash.  Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Mike, These look good and what a great way to sneak in some veggies for kids that are picky eaters!

Have a great day,

Mike, have you ever noticed how you don't always see things until you need them? I have way too many yellow squash and have been looking for something different to do with them. You've just solved it!! :)

These sound wonderful.  And I was just thinking about potato pancakes the other day.  I think I may even try them with sweet potatoes.  Thanks!

Susan - I keep meaning to try them with sweet potatoes, which are actually lower on the glyceming index than regular potatoes
