Bacon, Cheese & Sweet Potato Fritters

Serves 6
Time 30 minutes


2 cups self-raising flour

3 eggs

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 cup milk 

¼ cup polenta 

2 rashers bacon, thinly sliced 

½ cup breadcrumbs

1 cup sweet potatoes, grated

1 cup cheddar cheese, grated 

1 bunch coriander, finely chopped

1 bunch parsley, finely chopped 

1 bunch chives, finely chopped

1 long red chilli, coarsely chopped

1L vegetable oil, for frying


To serve


Spring onion


Iceberg lettuce cups


To a large mixing bowl, add the flour and crack the eggs in. Whisk to break up the eggs slightly, then add the paprika and the milk. Whisk again to combine with the flour. Add the polenta, bacon, cheese and sweet potato. Fold through with the breadcrumbs, then mix in the herbs and chilli.

Heat the oil up, and fry spoonfuls of the mixture in it until golden. Don’t overload the oil, so frying 5-6 at a time is best.
