Recipe: Vegetable Pancakes

I love these pancakes and they turn breakfast for dinner in to a much healthier prospect overall. You can use store bought mix or any other pancake batter that you like as well as substituting any vegetables you like in to the batter. I like to use carrots and zucchini because they are both mild and a little bit sweeter than your average vegetable though.
