Yields approximately 13 – two inch round fritters
2 Garlic cloves minced or ½ teaspoon garlic granules
1 cup thawed frozen Chopped Spinach
2 Eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons Olive Oil
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.
