Recipe: carrot patties
I made these two nights ago and they were delightful! Carrots and potatoes seem like an unlikely combination when mixed together, but I am obviously very wrong. I literally learn something new each time I make a TSR recipe. Both of my kids DO NOT like carrots, especially the daughter. I literally have to force-feed or threaten her with no dessert (very effective) each time I make them. It goes without saying that everyone loved your carrot patties. Thanks for a delicious and unusual recipe.
I added extra black pepper and margarine, a little white pepper and a dash of cayenne and paprika.
1 1/2 cups cooked mashed carrots
1 cup mashed cooked potatoes
2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Hot vegetable oil
Combine first nine ingredients, mixing well. Shape into 8 patties and dust each lightly with flour. Fry in hot oil until browned on both sides; drain on paper towels.
Serves 6 to 8.
