Anna's Asparagus Fritters
- 2 bunches fresh asparagus, trimmed
- 1/2cup grated cheese (Parmasian or Locatelli)
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoons flour
- 5 eggs
- salt and pepper
- Olive oil for frying
This recipe was contributed by our mom, Anna Maugeri, who says: ” My mother-in-law, Alfia, would come out of the field after cutting asparagus and prepare these asparagus patties. She passed this recipe down to me, and our family has really enjoyed them. We hope your family will too!”
Boil asparagus in salted water until tender.
Drain, then mash with a fork.
Put them in a large bowl and add other ingredients, Mix well
In a frying pan, add olive oil (enough to cover bottom of pan)
When hot, ladle in small portions of mixture (as if you were making pancakes.)
Brown nicely on both sides
Drain on paper towels
Serve by themselves or, on a roll with Provalone or American cheese.
*P.S. We eat these things for breakfast, lunch & dinner. Any time, day or night, they are delicious. Enjoy!*
