Due to request I’m posting my recipe for my Potato fritters.
These are great warm in a bento box served with spicy barbecue sauce or as part of a meal.
These could also be great using leftover mashed potatoes or roast potatoes mashed though I haven’t tried this yet.
Change the seasoning’s in accordance to what you have already added if doing this.
For calorie counters this recipe comes in at 110 calories per fritter.
I have used margarine and skimmed milk for this which should be as healthy as possible but if you would like to substitute for butter and Semi skimmed or full fat milk be aware of the calorie changes.
You could also substitute the Japanese Panko breadcrumbs for normal breadcrumbs if Panko is too hard to get a hold of.
I love this recipe for the fact that these get so crispy with no need for frying or a single drop of oil.

Next measure in the Panko breadcrumbs, mix well, it should be forming a sort of dough consistency now.
Next make a well in the mixture and measure in your frozen peas and sweetcorn, fold these in, making sure they don’t get crushed.
Split your mixture into 6 – 8 even pieces
With a spatula,mould each into a flat round on your baking tray.
