What’s on the toddler menu this week?! Veggie fritters! This is a spin-off of one of my all time favorite recipes that my grandmother used to make, squash fritters. She is no longer with us, but Christmas time sure makes me think of her. So I decided to break out her recipe collection and share these with my family. She used to make an awesome cheesecake too. Here’s to you memaw! My fritters are not as good as hers, but close. I added a few extra veggies to mine. Of course, I couldn’t leave well enough alone.
Ingredients: 1 medium squash, 1 medium zucchini, 1 medium carrot, 1 small onion, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp melted butter, 6 tbsp all-purpose flour, 2 tsp sugar, salt and pepper to taste
2. Combine veggies with flour, sugar and salt and pepper. Mix well.
3. Beat eggs and stir into mixture. Add melted butter.
4. Drop batter by spoonfuls onto a greased, hot griddle or skillet. Cook until golden brown, turn and brown the other side. Serve, refrigerate or freeze.
5. Bon Appe’tit baby!
Verdict: Delish! My husband actually liked them better than my baby. Neither one of us could keep our paws off. These fritters are nice and soft, easy to chew and swallow. They were easy for my son to pick up with his fingers and fork. I served them with ham and steamed apples. This made a yummy side dish. Give veggie fritters a try and let me know what you think!
