Zuchini Goat Cheese Pancakes

This isn't really a "breakfast" pancake but a variation of the German "potato pancakes" that Sgt. Schultz always savored over in "Hogan's Heroes" ... "I know nothing. Nothing!"

These are really, really savory! I really enjoy making and eating them, and they last several days and get better for leftovers too! It takes a bit of work to make and you need to watch them while they cook, but HEY most things that taste this good usually require some work!

This is one of our family favorites!

  • 1 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 zuchini, julienne
  • 1 yellow squash, julienne
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1 carrot, julienne
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • parsley, minced, to taste
  • oregano, to taste
  • black pepepr, to taste
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 egg (may use 2 egg whites if you want to cut fat)


Combine all ingredients except eggs, flour, and goat cheese in a large mixing bowl. Once well mixed, add the eggs and flour and fold mixture together well.

Heat a skillet to medium heat and add a small amount of oil to prevent sticking (substitute butter if you prefer). Place a thin circle of the mixture in the skillet, about one or two large serving spoons full. Immediately place some goat cheese crumbles on top and then cover again with another equal amount of the mixture (so the goat cheese is inside). Brown on one side, turn, and brown the other side.

Let rest for 1-3 minutes and serve.
