Broccoli Parmesan Fritters

We shopped in Best Yet Tuesday and picked up some great sale items. Big head of broccoli-77 cents, local eggs-77 cents, whole Perdue chickens-77 cents a pound.

I love broccoli but Gabe won't touch it. More for me!

I adapted the recipe from Smitten Kitchen.

Broccoli Parmesan Fritter

8 oz. Broccoli ( 1 small bunch)
1 large egg
1/2 C flour
1/3 C Parmesan cheese ( I used Kraft canned)
1 small clove garlic  minced
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
pinch of red pepper flakes or black pepper.
oil for the pan

Cut up the broccoli. Place in microwave and steam the broccoli. Once it's cool,  add to food processor for a few short pulses.

Add egg to a med. size bowl.

 Beat the egg, add flour and Parmesan and garlic. I didn't add the salt. I added a few shakes of my favorite Tony Chachere's.

Add some EVOO to the pan and fried them up.

Place fritters on a paper towel  to get rid of extra oil.


  1. I loved the zucchini-carrot fritter recipe that you posted a while back. I'm sure that these broccoli-parmesan fritters are delicious, as well! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes that you post. ~Aurora

  2. These look so good. I don't eat cooked broccoli, or most any veggies cooked. I know I am a strange one. I love raw veggies. I bet these are delicious tho.

  3. Oh I can't wait to try this..It looks so good..Thanks Linda..

  4. We are big fans of broccoli and cheese. These look fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing with us at sides and pies!
