A whole lotta something outta nothing…

Good afternoon lovelies! How are you all this afternoon?

Weekend breakfasts at the lovely co. call for something a tad more snazzy than our usual porridge or peanut butter on toast. Last Saturday was no different, except when we opened the fridge and the pantry they were barer than Old Mother Hubbarb’s kitchen cabinets. We immediately made a mental note to go grocery shopping later that day and decided that in the meantime we would have to see what we could rustle up with the few fresh ingredients we had.

Have you ever tried this lovelies? Getting creative with what you’ve got instead of trekking up to Woolies to restock? We do it every now and then and it’s a great lesson in minimising food wastage.

Anywho, here’s what we had: two small zucchinis (that looked a little past their prime, but still ok for cooking), two eggs, one rasher of bacon, half a tub of sour cream…plus the usual pantry staples like flour, sugar etc. Hmmm…what to make? We decided on Zucchini Fritters with sour cream and sweet chilli and topped with crispy bacon strips.

Fritters are a failsafe weekend breakfast option. Just combine two eggs, 2/3 cup of plain flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and a dash of milk, along with your star ingredient (in this case grated zucchini, but corn is delicious as well), salt and pepper and whatever herbs and spices you desire. Pour 1/4 cup portions into a hot, oiled pan and cook each side until golden brown.

Here’s a pic of our fritters.


Have a lovely day. X.
