Tomato Fritters - Harborwitch - 12-16-2007

We went to a very nice Christmas party last night, saw old friends and made some new ones. There was food for an army - I took truffle popcorn (they didn't know what it was but they loved it!), cream cheese with Lorraine's Habanero Gold jam, and queso fundido (Mexican cheeses & my chorizo).

One of my favorite things was this recipe for

Tomato Fritters


* 1 c. flour
* 1 tsp. baking powder
* 1 tsp. granulated sugar
* 3/4 tsp. salt
* 1/4 tsp. dried basil
* 1 (28oz) can tomatoes, drained
* 1 TB. finely minced onion
* 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
* 2 eggs
* Canola oil for frying


1. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and basil.
2. Cut tomatoes into 1/2" pieces and drain. Add them along with onion, parsley and Worcestershire sauce to flour mixture, but DO NOT mix.
3. In a small bowl beat eggs and add to flour-tomato mixture. Blend lightly with a fork.
4. Heat 1/4" of canola oil in skillet over medium heat. Drop batter by Tablespoon, patting down with the back of the spoon. Fry until golden brown on one side, then turn and fry the other side. Keep fritters warm until serving time.

She didn't serve it with anything - they were so good just the way they were. Heavenly!! And. . they were made by a gal that does not cook or even like to cook.

Sharon, those do sound great - copied and ready to play with them.

"I took truffle popcorn (they didn't know what it was but they loved it!)" - glad to see you're moving in a little better circle of friends now.

Funny - they weren't the kind of folks I'd have thought would love it! I think they were looking for chocolate. But they ate a half a huge salad bowl!
