Baby marrow fritters for breakfast anyone?


Great recipe for a snack, breakfast or even lunch. Found this recipe in Kos as Dit knyp, Goedkoop, Gesond en gou by Emilia le Roux. Wonderful book if you are only starting to cook and don’t have a lot of time.  Check it out!

Baby marrow fritters and guacamole                                            

Baby marrow fritters

  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tablespoon(tb) (15ml) cooking oil
  • 2 t salt
  • ½t chilli flakes (Robertsons Crushed Chillies)
  • 1 tb basil, finely chopped
  • 1 tb origano, finely chopped
  • 3 cups grated baby marrows (350 g)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar or crumbed feta
  • 1¾ cup flower
  • cooking oil for frying

Method:                                                                                                                                      Wine time: 30-45min

Beat eggs, oil, herbs and flavouring substance together. Add baby marrows, corn kernels and cheese and mix together with a wooden spoon. Add the flower next and mix well. Fry a table spoon full of the  batter(or as much as you want depending on how big the fritters must be) in as much oil that you are comfortable with. (I used as little as possible, because I don’t like oil frying) Fry until brown on both sides.

Serve it hot/cold with guacamole and rocket or if you like something sweet, some apricot jam and cheese.


  • 2 avos
  • salt and pepper taste
  • Few splashes of lemon juice
  • Ina Paarman Chilli and Garlic seasoning
  • Robertsons Crushed Chillies
  • 1 tomato finely chopped
  • Tabasco to taste (It adds lots of flavour especially to the after taste)
  • Cherry tomatoes halved/chilies for colour

Mix all the ingredients with a fork or if you had a long day use a stick-blender, but don’t over mix it, because it looses the bright green colour.

So go make some Baby marrow fritters for National Breakfast day tomorrow (18 March 2013) or wait for my next post for another breakfast fast snack.
