  4. Being born and raised in New Orleans, I had to modify these. The basics are good, but I used twice as much broccoli and green onions, as well as seasoning with Mrs. Dash Original (salt-free). I added black pepper and iodized sea salt. I floured for consistency. No measuring. I found it hard to get them unstuck from spooning into a 1/4 cup measurement, so I used the top to a Smucker’s peanut butter jar, sprayed with olive oil on the inside, and pressed patties into that. Turned it over into my palm. Slap, slap! And they came right out in perfect size. Pan fried in an iron skillet 2 minutes on each side, and voila! Bon appetite!! (I posted photos at Sandra Maureen on FB) Thanks for the recipe, y’all!!

    1. Looking forward to trying this recipe this week when a friend comes around for dinner. Will serve it with roast chicken.

      This recipe reminds me of English ‘bubble and squeak’ which is mixed with mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts and veggie leftovers from Christmas dinner. Gently fried in butter and served with cold turkey, chicken or whatever the favoured roast was from Christmas day and just so yummy! Think next day ‘leftovers’ are simply the best!

  9. After making these fabulous tasty fritters, I just wanted to let you know how much I loved it! Although there are no kiddos in this household, this was an adult-pleasing recipe. My husband reached across the table for a second serving.

  10. These look just my thing and I love how you’ve given nutritional info for broccoli. Thanks for linking up with Fiesta Friday – don’t forget to add your party links for a chance to be featured the following week.
