Ingredients

  • 400 g of broccoli stalk removed -cut into small florets.
  • 4 rashers of short cut bacon cut into small pieces.
  • 2 cups of self raising flour 300g
  • 1 cup of parmesan cheese - finely grated 70g
  • ½ cup of tasty cheese - grated 50g
  • 1 garlic clove - crushed
  • 1 teaspoon of onion flakes
  • 2 eggs - lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup of water 175g
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • olive oil to shallow fry

Instructions

  • Place the broccoli florets into a food processor and blitz until they turn into small pieces. Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Add the crushed garlic, onion flakes, chopped bacon, parmesan cheese and tasty cheese to the bowl with the broccoli and add the self raising flour before stirring well to combine.
  • Beat the eggs in a small bowl lightly with a fork and add salt and pepper to taste. Add the eggs along with ¼ cup of water to the bowl with the broccoli mixture and stir. Gradually add the extra water and stir until you have a thick batter - please note you may not need all of the water/or need extra depending on the water content of the broccoli you have used.
  • Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat and use a ¼ measuring cup to scoop up the batter and place the fritter mixture into your pan. Use a spoon to gently spread the mixture into a circle between ½cm - 1cm thick. You should be able to fit approximately six fritters (or even more depending on the size of your pan) into your frying pan.
  • Cook the Fritters for 5 minutes on each side until they are crisp and golden brown before transferring to a plate and covering them with foil so they stay warm while you cook the next batch. Repeat until all the mixture has been used.

Notes

These Broccoli Bacon and Cheese Fritters are freezer friendly.
You may need more/less water than stated in the recipe depending on the water content of your broccoli.
