Variation on a theme is popular around here when time is short and I am in a hurry to get something on the table everyone will eat. I have mentioned the reliability of frittata, well, here’s my plug for pancakes and fritters. Pretty much anything and everything around here has been shredded and put in a regular pancake mix or been moistened with an egg and a little milk, then fried and served up with sour cream, salsa or syrup, depending on the ingredients and the mood.
Corn Pancakes: I like to take the leftover corn off the cob and mix it with a little pancake batter, fry up and serve with butter and syrup. Sometimes I just add a handful of flour and an egg to the corn (as we do with shredded zucchini) and fry that – more like a fritter. My sister does the same fritter thing and then tops them with cheese and salsa.
