2 medium to large zucchinis

3 medium to large carrots

1/4 cup finely diced sweet onion

3 eggs

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

a bit of sweetener of your choice (we use stevia)

1 Tbsp oil, plus more for the griddle

~1/3 cup panko or homemade breadcrumbs, very fine

 

1.  Prep.  Grate zucs and carrots, dice onion.

KIDS: Wash zucs and carrots, experiment with peeler or grater.

 

2.  Mix.  Whisk eggs, add salt, pepper, oil, sweetener.  Add zucs, carrots, and onion, mix.

KIDS: Learn to crack eggs.  Mix things without sloshing out of bowl.

 

3.  Cook.  Heat griddle over medium heat, grease well.  Stir in panko- more if necessary to make a batter that will hold the egg.  Shape with your hands, slap on the griddle.

KIDS:  Collect the toppings you like best.

 

We like these with these toppings:

yogurt

apple sauce

maple syrup

homemade hucklecherry jam

 

Serves 2 big people and 2 medium sized people and 1 baby.

Whoops!  This is what happens when I try to post when I have the flu.  These two recipes need to be moved to the contest thread.  Sorry!
