This post is feeling very dejected. It deserved swift, full recognition, but got put on the back burner unjustifiably. So, let me make it up by giving my Patty Pan Patties, or fritters if you prefer, their due time in the limelight.
Not to mention, after all of the cake we’ve been making, I could use a vegetable post. The inspiration from this dish comes from the patty pan squash I bought.
After grilling it on the bbq, which was tasty, I didn’t know what else to do with it. So, I figured I would give grating it a try.
Truth be told, I don’t remember what exactly went into these fritters (hanging head in shame – it was that long ago). But, here are the basic components:
8 patty pan squash
1/2 cup of parmesan cheese
kernels from one ear of corn
1/4 cup of bread crumbs
salt & pepper, to taste
Blend together and form fritters. Fry in about 3-4 tbsp of olive oil.
I also made a cherry tomato dressing. My memory is also vague on this one. I know I cut the tomatoes in half, cooked them with garlic, salt and pepper and maybe a splash of white wine.
Good meal all around. I'm kind of craving some more right now.
I'm submitting the fritters to Culinarty's Original Recipe Event.
A few exciting tidbits:
-I’m planning a cooking weekend, so I’m sure we’ll have more to share with you soon. Not to mention an A+ birthday cake I made for R’s birthday.
- We went to a restaurant that would definitely make my favourite restaurant list (not that I have a specific list). I’ll tell you all about that soon.
- We’re hosting Presto Pasta Nights next week! More details to come.
- Now that Giz has unpacked most of her boxes, she sent out the awards for our 2nd Tried, Tested and True event!
- The pairings for the 2nd Adopt-A- Blogger came out today!
We’ve been paired with Hopie's Kitchen – a blog I already know and love. We’ll be making a post highlighting Hopie’s blog from Paris soon. How many Americans do you know who live in Paris and write a food blog bilingually? None? Well – now you know one. Go check out Hopie’s Kitchen!
