What's for breakfast?

zucchini pancakes, originally uploaded by cabanagirl.

Try zucchini for breakfast with these yummy zucchini pancakes:

3/4 pound summer squash grated with a box grater
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup diced onions, scallions or shallots
6-8 TBS flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
fresh dill

Grate the squash (including the skin) and pace in a bowl. Add the diced onion and eggs. Mix well. Then add the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Mix again. Try 6 Tbs at first and if at this point the mixture is too thin, add more flour.
In a heavy pan or griddle, melt 2 Tbs butter and add 2 Tbs olive oil. When hot enough for regular pancakes add 2 big spoonfuls of batter. Cook 2 minutes on each side.
Serve hot with fresh dill or other herb and sliced tomatoes.
I added fresh melon topped with a strawberry, raspberry sauce (will be posted later)
Bon petit dejeuner!
