Spicy Bacon Cheese Zucchini Cakes

My girls love this recipe for ” Spicy bacon cheese zucchini pancakes”. They forgot they were eating zucchini. This pancake is delicious, savory, cheesy, and I love the crispness around the edges of the pancake. I had three zucchini’s and I didn’t want to just make a zucchini pancake. I wanted to make a zucchini cake with a little zest, so I decided to add whatever I can think of that I had in my fridge and that’s when I decided to add bacon and some Italian cheese and I wanted a little kick so I minced a Habanero pepper to give the pancake a kick. I add Habanero to almost everything I cook. After all of that , I must say this zucchini pancake is a thumbs up!! .IMG_0285a_MG_0295a_MG_0289a_MG_0299aIMG_0304a_MG_0335a_MG_0336ac
