Zucchini Feta Pancakes

zucchini feta pancakes

I cannot tell you how many times we have made these. Typically we make ahead, then reheat for dinner, but I can’t keep myself from snitching throughout the day. Especially in the crazy zucchini days of summer, but also in winter as we reach into the freezer to feed us, this recipe is a definite go-to. My frozen, shredded garden zucchini cooks up beautifully in these and now that we raise chickens and have a steady supply of eggs, there’s more reason than ever to pull out the cast iron skillet.
