Savory Corn Pancakes


Summer in Maine is a bountiful culinary celebration of color, flavor, and texture. A group is coming over for a little taste testing, so we’ve harvested things from the garden and shopped for the provisions we don’t grow. Minted cucumber water is steeping in the ‘frige and tart is cooling on the window sill. We’ll share the other recipes in the coming days.  In the meantime, invite some friends for lunch!

  2. My mom used to make these once in a while (minus the cheese) and serve them with maple syrup – usually with fried chicken. So all American, so good! Thanks for the memory – and the recipe!
