Recipe Challenge: Day 17 – Vegetable Fritters

Pin It
Hope you guys like peas!!  We made Sweet Pea Fritters today and they made a wonderful afternoon snack for the kids. This recipe would do great for parties or get togethers  even birthday’s. Simple and easy to make you’ll enjoy the bite sized vegetable treats. My kids gave them thumbs up and said they were awesome, so definitely a win in this house.

So yummy!!
1 (16 ounce ) package of frozen peas  thawed and drained(or fresh, I used my canned peas from last summer)
1 (10 ounce package frozen onions thawed and drained. ( fresh is fine too, that’s what I used, just chop them up small
3 large eggs separated
3 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon yellow corn meal
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
peanut oil for frying
Combine the peas, onions, egg yolks , flour, corn meal , salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
In a separate bowl beat the egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff but not dry (about 2 minutes) Fold eggs into the pea mixture. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
In a large pot pour oil in to a  depth about 3 inches. Heat oil on med-high and heat to 350. Using a ice cream scoop out fritters and carefully drop into hot oil.
Working in small batches cook till slightly browned about 3 minutes. Turn and cook till other side is browned. Remove and drain on paper towels.
*I found using a spoon and simply letting the mixture slide in the oil worked better. If you drop it, or plop it in, it separates and really gets to be just floating peas. Just let the mixture slip off carefully from whatever tool you use to get it in the oil.
Serve with favorite dip.
Isn’t it cute? Perfect bite sized for the kids 🙂
Simple and fun, enjoy!
