Cheesy Carrot and Spinach Fritters

Back to Recipe list
Great alternative to an omelette or a pancake, they are a kind of a cross between the two. Using just eggs, carrot, spinach and a few spices, these naturally gluten free fritters are so good with cheese melted in the middle! You can also eat them on their own but the melted cheese just adds another dimension.
