Vegetable Fritters with Garlic Herb Sauce

We’re kind of coming full circle here, with Budget Bytes. I started this blog as a log of what I was cooking up in my kitchen with my limited budget and over the years it has grown into a massive recipe development project. But now, with limited grocery access, I’m returning to just showcasing the things I’m cooking up in my kitchen with what I have. These Vegetable Fritters are one of the things I’ve made while isolating at home. It’s just a mish-mash of the vegetables I had on hand in my fridge and freezer, fried up with a simple batter, and served with a sour cream based Garlic Herb sauce. It’s simple, delish, and a great way to use up your leftover vegetables so they don’t go to waste!

Easy Vegetable Fritters with Garlic Herb Dip

What Vegetables Can I Add to the Fritters?

Some other vegetables that would be excellent in these fritters include: cauliflower, cabbage, spinach, mushrooms, spinach, potatoes, zucchini, eggplant, and bell pepper. For really soft, high water content vegetables, like eggplant, zucchini, and frozen spinach, you probably want to sauté them first to eliminate some of the excess moisture before adding to your fritters. 

No matter what vegetables you plan to add to your fritters, make sure to shred them (using a large-holed cheese grater or food processor), or chop them finely so the fritters hold together better. 

Other Add-ins

If you want to make these cheesy fritters, you can add some grated Parmesan (about ¼ cup) or some shredded cheddar (½ cup) to the batter. Another option is to change up the seasoning. I made my vegetable fritters super simple because I actually enjoy being able to taste the individual vegetables, but you can also experiment with adding different seasonings like ranch powder, Cajun seasoning, or a basic seasoning salt like Lawry’s. Just make sure that if you’re adding a seasoning that already contains salt that you also reduce the salt added to the batter.

How to Serve Vegetable Fritters

Vegetable fritters make a great appetizer or side dish to just about any main. I’d serve them next to something like meatloaf, Glazed Chicken Thighs, Sloppy Joes, Portobello Burgers, or just serve them right on top of a pile of creamy Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes (in place of the dipping sauce)

Can I Bake the Fritters?

No, these will not turn out well if baked. They definitely need to be fried in oil to create the correct texture.

How Are the Leftovers?

As with any fried food the fritters do not stay crispy on the edges, but I still find the leftovers to be quite flavorful and delicious! As long as you’re not expecting a crispy fritter, I think they’re quite enjoyable as leftovers. I reheated mine using a microwave, but you could also heat them in a skillet over medium-low heat until heated through.

Ingredients

Garlic Herb Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup sour cream $0.22
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley $0.05
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano $0.03
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil $0.03
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder $0.02
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder $0.02
  • 1/8 tsp salt $0.02
  • 1/8 tsp pepper $0.02

Vegetable Fritters

  • 1/2 lb. frozen broccoli florets $1.30
  • 1 cup frozen corn $0.35
  • 1 carrot $0.07
  • 3 green onions $0.30
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder $0.02
  • 1 tsp salt $0.05
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour $0.08
  • 2 large eggs $0.47
  • 3 Tbsp cooking oil $0.12

Instructions

  • Make the garlic herb dipping sauce first, so the flavors have some time to blend. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, dried parsley, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate the dip until ready to eat.
  • Allow the broccoli and corn to thaw, or use the defrost function on a microwave thaw to them. Finely chop the broccoli. Peel and grate the carrot using a large-holed cheese grater. Slice the green onions.
  • Add the broccoli, corn, carrots, and green onion to a large bowl. Also add the flour, eggs, garlic powder, and salt. Stir until everything is evenly combined.
  • Heat 1 Tbsp cooking oil in a large non-stick skillet (cast iron, ceramic, or teflon) over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot and the oil is shimmering, add the vegetable fritter batter to the skillet in ¼ cup dollops, pressing the mixture down to a flat pancake once it’s in the skillet. Cook the fritters for about 3 minutes on each side, or until deep golden brown on both sides. Cook 3 or 4 fritters in the skillet at a time, adding another tablespoon of oil between batches. Transfer the cooked fritters to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Once all the fritters are cooked, serve while still warm, with the garlic herb sauce for dipping.

Notes

If using other vegetables, use a total of about 3.5 cups finely chopped or shredded vegetables.

How to Make Vegetable Fritters – Step by Step Photos

A small bowl with garlic herb dipping sauce and a small spatula

Make the garlic herb dipping sauce first so the flavors have a little time to blend. This is basically just sour cream plus my All-Purpose Garlic Herb Seasoning (a half batch). It also makes a great chip dip! Stir together ½ cup sour cream, ½ tsp dried parsley, ¼ tsp dried oregano, ¼ tsp dried basil, ⅛ tsp garlic powder, ⅛ tsp onion powder, ⅛ tsp salt, and ⅛ tsp pepper. Refrigerate the dip until ready to serve.

Chopped thawed frozen broccoli florets

Thaw ½ lb. frozen broccoli florets and 1 cup frozen corn. Finely chop the broccoli florets.

Shredded carrot with cheese grater

Peel and shred one carrot (about 1 cup once shredded). Slice 3 green onions.

Prepared vegetables in a large bowl

Add the broccoli, carrot, corn, and green onion to a large bowl.

Vegetables in the bowl with flour, eggs, and seasoning.

Also add 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tsp salt, and ¼ tsp garlic powder. 

Vegetable fritter batter in the bowl

Stir until everything is evenly combined and coated in batter.

Cooked fritters in a skillet

Cook the fritters in batches of 3 to 4 at a time, in a non-stick skillet (any type of non-stick, like cast iron, ceramic, or teflon). Add 1 Tbsp cooking oil to the skillet before each batch and heat over medium until the skillet is hot and the oil shimmering. Once hot, add the batter, ¼ cup at a time, pressing it down into a pancake once it’s in the skillet. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until deeply golden brown.

Cooked vegetable fritters on a paper towel lined plate

Transfer the cooked vegetable fritters to a paper towel lined plate before cooking the next batch.

Easy Pork Carnitas - Juicy, tender pork carnitas made in 30 min, start to finish! No fuss, no hassle. Serve as tacos or burrito bowls. So easy, so so good.

We are just about to enter week 3 of our quarantine/stay-at-home order here in Chicago. We’re playing trivia via Zoom, going on all the FaceTimes with friends, and doing taco night with all the fix-ins here.

And I know we all have a bit more time to cook as we’re locked insides our home but hey, I am always down for quick carnitas. Specifically 30 minutes start to finish. No fuss, no hassle.

Now you can serve these in warm tortillas or as burrito bowls – there’s no right or wrong, and it is ALL GOOD. I also know it is hard to find some ingredients right now so please feel free to use any kind of toppings/fix-ins you have on hand – black beans, corn kernels, cherry tomatoes, and/or romaine lettuce (or other types of greens you have handy) will also work beautifully here.

And if you have some ice cold beers on standby, that will also work perfectly as a side.

Breakfast Burritos that are Freezer Friendly!

Breakfast Burritos are a great way to plan breakfast ahead. These are packed with ham, eggs, cheese and a lot of add-ins like pico de gallo, hash browns etc.

Also check out our favorite breakfast recipes like sausage mushroom frittata, cinnamon roll pancakes, yogurt parfait and denver omelet casserole.

If you are not a breakfast person, you’ll love breakfast after you try these breakfast burritos! They are incredibly easy to make, you can make a big batch and freeze them ahead. So if you have a large family that needs to be fed, you don’t need to spend mornings making breakfast anymore. Just prep them over the weekend, and you have breakfast ready during the week. Plus, I’m going to give you a ton of ideas on how you can make them a little bit different.

Freezer Friendly Breakfast Burritos

We love breakfast burritos because you can so easily make them your own. And they are a great way to break up the monotony of having eggs or cereal every day.

I make these breakfast burritos a ton of different ways. The ones pictures here are filled with turkey ham, scrambled eggs, pico de gallo and lots of melty cheese.

Let’s talk about all the different things that can make these burritos even more awesome.

Scrambled eggs in a pan

Storing and using Tortillas

We like using 8 inch flour tortillas, but you can also use a larger size if you prefer. Try to open a fresh batch of tortillas and use them for these burritos because they are the easiest to roll. But if you have slightly oder tortillas, stack them between slightly damp towels and microwave them for 20-30 seconds and they’ll come right back to life!

Filling inside a breakfast burrito

Filling Ideas

We love using slices of ham as the first thing on these tortillas. It keeps the tortilla from getting wet and acts like a barrier between the rest of the filling and the tortillas. Other filling ideas include:

  • scrambled eggs
  • onions and mushroom
  • bacon
  • tomatoes
  • spicy sausages
  • chopped bell peppers
  • hash brown potatoes
  • black beans
  • refried beans

And CHEESE of course!

Breakfast burritos packed in foil

Start by prepping and cooking everything. Then get the family together, and roll these breakfast burritos together. Kids can decide what they want or don’t want in their burritos. As you roll these out, you can wrap them in foil or parchment paper and write the ingredients on top so that you can easily identify whats in them. Then just transfer them to a gallon sized ziplock and freeze them, or consume them immediately. To reheat, unwrap them and microwave them for a minute or two till they are warm and the cheese has melted inside.

Keyword Breakfast Burritos
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 8 people
Calories 397kcal

Ingredients

  • 8 8 inch Flour Tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 12 large Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black Pepper
  • 8 slices Deli Ham
  • 1 1/2 cups Pico de Gallo
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar

Instructions

  • Whisk together eggs, sour cream, salt and pepper. Heat butter in a non stick skillet and add the whisked eggs. Stir the eggs and scramble till they are cooked (approx 2-3 minutes). Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • To assemble the tortillas, place a slice of deli ham on a flour tortilla. Add approx 1/2 cup scrambled eggs, 1-2 tbsp pico de gallo and sprinkle with cheese. Don’t overstuff them or they will be difficult to roll.
  • Roll the burritos from bottom to top. Roll one end of the tortilla over the filling, fold the sides over and continue rolling till you reach the top, tucking the filling in as you go. Repeat till all the burritos are filled.

Notes

  • To make pico de gallo, mix together chopped tomatoes, onions, garlic, jalapenos, lime juice, chopped cilantro and salt.
  • Store these burritos by wrapping them in parchment paper or foil
  • If freezing these burritos for later, skip the pico de gallo, and replace it with sauteed mushrooms, hash browns or sausage
