   Kitchen Wisdom Gluten Free Spinach Fritters are and delicious!  Your guests will enjoy the flavor and texture of these outrageous appetizers.  Make ahead of time and re-heat just before serving. Preparation takes only a few minutes.  Any gluten free breadcrumb can work in this recipe, I process rice crackers to a meal as my breadcrumb in this recipe, or supplement with your favorite gluten free breadcrumbs to make prep even more simple. Enjoy with friends and a glass of wine. Buon Appetito! 

Yields approximately 13 – two inch round fritters

 Spinach Mixture:

2 Garlic cloves minced or ½ teaspoon garlic granules

1  cup  thawed frozen Chopped Spinach

2  Eggs, beaten

3 tablespoons Olive Oil

 Breadcrumb Mixture:

3/4  cup Sesame Rice Crackers ground fine (or store bought GF Breadcrumbs)

2 tablespoons Grated Cheese (I use Pecorino Romano)

¼ teaspoon Garlic granules

¼ teaspoon Onion granules

¼ teaspoon Salt

Optional crushed Red Pepper

Prepare Breadcrumb Mixture:  Mix together 1/2 cup Sesame Rice Crackers ground fine,  grated cheese, the garlic and onion granules and salt.  Place aside.

Place final 1/3 cup cracker meal in a  separate shallow bowl.  Set aside.

Prepare the Spinach:   squeeze out excess liquid from thawed frozen chopped spinach and place in a bowl.  Beat 2 eggs and mix those into the spinach.   Mix in Breadcrumb mixture.  Combine thoroughly.   The final mixture should feel damp not wet.  If too wet, add more breadcrumb.

Make the Fritters:  Using your hands , pluck 2 inch dollop and form it into a flattish round.  Then place it  in reserved breadcrumb in shallow bowl.

Warm fry pan on medium high heat with olive oil enough to coat pan by 1/8”-1/4”.  When oil is hot , place fritters into oil (leave about an inch or more between fritters in pan during cooking). Reduce heat to medium.  Cook 6 minutes, flip with spatula, flatten with back of spatula once flipped.  Cook on opposite side 6 minutes.

Place cooked fritters on plate lined with paper towel to cool.

Baking instead of Frying:  Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. These can also be formed and placed on an oiled cookie sheet. Bake 25 minutes, flip 14 minutes into baking.  Serve warm or room temperature.
