Recipe of the Month: Courgette & Sweetcorn Fritters


Our friends at Piccolo have shared a speedy meal for the whole family: super quick and perfect for all the family. If you don’t have time to make individual fritters, just take out the flour and add a couple more eggs to make individual omelettes, they work just as well!

Tip: Fritters can be made with any variety of vegetables or cheeses. Try grated carrot and spring onion with cheddar, or mushroom and ham with mozzarella. You can even make fruity ones. Try adding chopped apple and cinnamon!
