Breakfast Fritters Loved Worldwide
A fritter is a savoury or sweet, fried food usually consisting of a portion of batter or breading which has been filled with bits of meat, seafood, fruit, vegetables or other ingredients.
The batter-frying technique was introduced into Japan by the Portuguese and Spanish in the late 16th century; the tempura that developed, a mixed fry of shrimps, herbs, and vegetables, has been totally incorporated into the cuisine.

- 1 piece of
Lo-Dough, blitzed to a crumb
- 1 large egg, beaten
- ½ an onion
- 1 small clove of garlic
- 30g ricotta cheese
- Chopped fresh herbs (we used a teaspoon each of thyme, parsley and chives)

- Salt & pepper
What you'll need
This diet-friendly recipe is possible with:
- Oil a pan with 3 sprays of fry-light and soften the onion gently for a 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
While the onions fry, add your
Lo-Dough, egg, cheese, herbs and seasoning to a bowl and mix. Once cooled, add the onions too. If you like things spicy, you can add a little chilli. Customise as you like.
- Shape the mixture into two fritters and using the remaining sprays, gently fry the fritter on both sides until golden brown and cooked through (for approx. 3 minutes per side).
- Serve with any of your breakfast favourites.
