Step 1

In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil, salt, pepper and dried herbs. Whisk to combine.

Add the zucchini, corn and cheddar cheese and stir thoroughly with a spatula.

Add the flour and stir until thoroughly combined and there are no pockets of dry flour hiding in the batter.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet or griddle to medium-high heat, adding a very small amount of oil to the skillet/griddle. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet and flatten, if necessary, with the back of the scoop into a circle about 4 inches in diameter. Cook on each side about 3 to 4 minutes, or until a deep golden brown. Remove from skillet and transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter.

Serve warm with your favorite toppings like salsa and sour cream).
