Bottom of the fridge fritters and dip

Another one of those recipes that allow for complete creativity. I’ve already posted one savoury recipe for a main and one sweet (or savoury recipe), and this time is a starter or snack: fritters with a dip.

I love fritters, they are so versatile. And, yes I know I’ve been overusing that word, but that’s what this month is all about: finding versatile recipes that allow you to use what you’ve got.

These fritter can be baked, deep fried or pan fried. The ones on the phone were baked, mostly because I’m scared of deep frying!

If the ingredient for the dip confuse you, check here for an explanation.
