PREP TIME 20 MINS
COOK TIME 5-10 MINS
SERVES 16 to 24

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 Red Onion, finely sliced
  • 2 tsp. Fennel Seeds
  • 1 tbsp. White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 medium Sweet Potato, finely grated or shredded with a papaya cutter
  • 60 g Pepperoni, cut into strips
  • 1 cup Spinach, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. MasterFoods™ Oregano Leaves
  • ½ cup mixed cheese, such as shredded Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup MasterFoods™ Tomato Sauce, plus extra for dipping
  • ½ cup Plain Flour, plus more if needed
  • Handful of Basil leaves

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Heat half the olive oil in frying pan over a medium high heat.
  2. Cook onions until just starting to soften, then add fennel seeds and cook for another minute. Add the white wine vinegar, remove from heat and leave to cool completely.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the sweet potato, spinach, pepperoni, oregano, cheese, and cooled onion mix.
  4. Stir in the beaten egg and tomato sauce, then fold in the flour and mix until no dry spots remain, taking care not to over work the mixture.
  5. Heat the remaining half the olive oil in frying pan over a medium high heat.
  6. Place two tablespoons of mixture into the pan and gently flatten. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden and crisp. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  7. To serve, plate fritters with fresh basil scattered on top and extra tomato sauce on the side for dipping.

Tips:

  • For extra crispiness and crunch, finely grate over parmesan cheese when frying in pan on each side.
  • Can be served with mustards and chilli sauces.
  • For heat, add a teaspoon or two of MasterFoods™ Chilli Sprinkle.
