How to Make BROCCOLI PARMESAN FRITTERS
- Steam the broccoli in a small amount of boiling water for 5 or 6 minutes. Drain well; set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat the egg and add flour, cheese, garlic, salt and pepper. Add the somewhat cooled broccoli and mash the mixture with a potato masher until you have 1/4- to 1/2-inch chunks.
- Form the mixture into mounds and place in hot oil in a large skillet. Slightly mash the mounds by pressing on them with a spatula. Brown over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
- Transfer briefly to paper towels to drain, and then to a serving plate.
