This low-carb ricotta and parmesan cheese fritters recipe, topped with a dollop of sour cream and a side of smoked salmon is super easy to make.

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 good 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.

How to Make Keto Cheese Fritters

  1. In a mixing bowl add all ingredients except the olive oil. Mix until it comes together into a ball, similar to a very soft dough.
  2. Split the mixture into 12 pieces and form each piece into a small round patty.
  3. In a large non-stick frying pan add the olive oil and warm over medium heat.
  4. Add the fritters and sauté for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Take care when flipping as the fritters are very delicate.
