A classic brunch dish, our Low Carb Ricotta Cheese Fritters, topped with a dollop of sour cream and a side of smoked salmon. Sounds like the perfect lazy Sunday breakfast to feed the family.
This recipe relies on making the extra effort to buy good quality fresh ricotta cheese, I’m talking about going to your local deli for a nice piece or even making your own. Whatever you do, don’t use the processed, grainy and watery ricotta that comes in plastic tubs.
This recipe makes 12 fritters, 2 per serve makes 6 serves total. It’s a great idea to make a batch on the weekend and reheat in the microwave, or for a few minutes in a non stick frying pan for a quick breakfast during the week.
