These are terrific! I will definetly make them again. One tip so you don't make the mistake I did - don't make the dough balls too big. They don't cook in the middle, leaving a creamy center, which is still good, but not how they are supposed to be. Also make sure, as with all oil frying, that your oil it hot hot hot! That way they won't be greasy. These were so tasty, not heavy or greasy at all, and my picky husband who rarely tries anything new even liked them! Thanks for this great recipe!-22 May 2003

I thought these were great! I didn't have any half & half, so I just used the same amount of milk and they turned out great. I'm not a big nutmeg fan, so I substituted cinnamon and ginger. I recommend trying to not make the fritters too large, which can result in the middle not being done. To go with the fritters, I made an apple sauce out of shredded apples, dried cranberries, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, butter, water, and a dash or two of salt. I heated on the stove (slightly above medium) until it became somewhat thick (around 15 minutes total). Try cutting the cheese fritters in half and placing the apple sauce on it. Yummy!-21 Jan 2009

What a great taste! I had some leftover cottage cheese that I wanted to use up and this was the perfect solution! Make sure you drain the fritters well after frying as they do retain the grease. The nutmeg adds an awesome surprise flavor. Light and fluffy and yummy w/raspberry jam!-26 Feb 2005

Sweet Lemon Ricotta Fritters

These sweet fritters are incredibly easy and quick to make and they are a great substitute for the traditional doughnut when celebrating Mardi Gras or Carnival season. Let's take a look at what you will need:

Sugar - Use granulated white sugar in this recipe. The fritters aren't overly sweet, but they still need a bit of sugar to make them extra delicious.

Ricotta cheese - Makes them rich, yet light. Always use whole milk ricotta cheese, it's the best. A good substitute would be cottage cheese.

Eggs - Keep the fritters together.

Vanilla - Highly recommend using vanilla, because it's the best, however, if you don't currently have it at home, it's okay, you can leave it out.

Lemon - Makes all the difference. These fritters need a bit of freshness and lemon gives them life. Always use bio lemon zest (unwaxed lemons)

Flour - All-purpose flour, plain flour or type 00 flour will work great in this recipe.

Butter - Always add cool melted butter to the egg mixture. You can substitute with coconut oil (just don't use vegetable oil)

Oil - Use any frying oil you like, like canola or sunflower oil.

Sweet Potato and Cottage Cheese Fritters (gluten free)

I wanted the first recipe of 2014 to be something healthy, something nourishing, something wholesome. Don’t get me wrong, I have been eating cookies and lollies like a madwoman – the evil of proximity to deliciousness, but now is the time to reign things in a little and focus on eating more of nature’s goodness and less of the buttery, sugary goodness that sometimes takes over my plate. I have been filling my lunch bowl with greens and beans until it overflows, snacking on apples while reading stretched out on my parent’s couch, eating carrots by the bag, and treating myself to sweet and plump dried apricots and prunes before bedtime. When it comes to dinner though, sometimes I need something a little more hearty than a salad.

These sweet potato and cottage cheese fritters are plump and chewy and spiced with cumin and coriander and paprika. They are high in protein (from the cottage cheese and the egg) and provide a decent amount of vitamin A and complex carbohydrates (from the sweet potato and the whole grain flours used). Most importantly they are high on flavour too. I served mine with a salad and on one night a drizzle of Japanese mayonnaise. They would also be excellent with a poached or fried egg, and if you are being a little naughty (and are not a vegetarian) a few slices of bacon are always welcome with a plate of fritters. They heat up well and make great lunch box snacks (just make them a little smaller than these ones) for back to school and back to work.

Charred spring onion and pea fritters with a yoghurt and herb salad (pictured above)

These have become a favourite on my table. The charred spring onions add depth and smokiness to offset the bright, sweet little peas. I serve them with a herb-heavy salad, bringing amazing fragrance to the table. The double mint yoghurt makes use of dried mint as a rule I prefer fresh herbs to dried, but this is an exception where the two forms of mint sing together.

Serves 4
3 bunches of spring onions
400g fresh podded or frozen peas
3 tbsp sesame seeds
1 x 400g tin white beans (such as cannellini or butter)
2 tbsp plain flour (or spelt)
Zest of 1 lemon, juice of half
A small bunch of mint

For the yoghurt
6 tbsp plain yoghurt
A few sprigs of mint, leaves picked and finely chopped
2 tsp dried mint
Zest of 1 lemon
A glug of olive oil
1 tsp sumac

For the herb salad
2 handfuls of pea shoots
A small bunch of dill
A small bunch of mint
A small bunch of chervil or tarragon

1 First, char the spring onions on a very hot griddle pan until soft right through and charred all over. If you don’t have a griddle pan you could roast them in a hot oven for 10 minutes. Blanch the peas in salted boiling water until just cooked.

2 Toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan until golden, then tip into a bowl to cool.

3 Put the drained white beans into a food processor with half of the cooked peas and blitz them until they are mashed up, but not pasty – you still want a few beans to be visible. You can do this with a potato masher too if getting the food processor out is a chore. Transfer to a mixing bowl.

4 Roughly chop the charred spring onions and put in the bowl with the rest of the peas and the flour, 2 tbsp of the sesame seeds, the lemon zest and chopped mint. Season well with salt and pepper.

5 Mix the yoghurt with the mint, dried and fresh, the zest and olive oil, season well and put into a bowl, then top with the sumac and the remaining toasted sesame seeds.

6 Pick all the herbs and mix with the pea shoots, then squeeze over the juice of half a lemon.

7 Heat a frying pan over a medium heat, add a covering of olive oil, then spoon heaped tablespoonfuls of the fritter mixture into the pan. You should be able to get about 12 fritters out of the mixture. Flatten each one a little with the back of the spoon and leave to cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. You can keep the first batch warm in a low oven while you cook the rest if all 12 don’t fit in your pan.

8 Serve the fritters with the double mint yoghurt, herb salad and some warm flatbreads, if you like.

Croatian Fritters (Fritule)

Croatian fritters (fritule) are miniature doughnuts that are traditional along the Dalmatian coast. They are a favorite Croatian Christmas treat, as well as being eaten during Carnival season and Lent, the period before Easter. Today, they make a great breakfast or coffee snack and are served in many areas of Croatia.

This recipe is from Klara Cvitanovich, the co-owner of Drago's Restaurant in New Orleans and Metairie, Louisiana. They have been made by the Croatian Jurisich family for more than 100 years at the old Morning Call coffee stand that was formerly located in the French market. She says they may actually have been the inspiration for beignets in New Orleans.

The difference between fritule and beignets is that fritule usually contain citrus zest and raisins and often are flavored with rum or brandy, including the Croatian rakija brandy. The rum or brandy was said to keep the fritule from picking up too much cooking oil. This recipe leaves out the rum, so they can be served to everyone in the household regardless of age. You could include a few drops of rum or brandy flavoring or substitute 3 tablespoons of rum or brandy for 3 tablespoons of the water.
