Nothing brings summer to the table more than garden fresh vegetables.

These vegetable fritters are to a good home cooked meal what hush puppies are to a plate of fried fish and slaw. Just plain good and no plate should be without them.

A great way to use up some odd pices of veggies that you don't have enough of one kind to make a dish. As for me, I don't need a reason to make these, I just go to the garden and pick what I need to make em! They are that good!

How to Make Fresh From the Garden Veggie Fritters

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients and whisk together to combine.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients except the oil. This should make a thick batter.
  4. Drop batter by tablespoons into hot oil; fry until a deep golden brown, about 4 minutes. Do NOT drop by heaping spoonfuls. If to big the centers will not cook completely. A nice size would be about the size of a hush puppy, a little larger than a walnut. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

    NOTE: Cook in batches. I normally drop 6 or 7 at a time. Don't crowd the fryer.
