I was going to try baking the fritters instead of frying them, to reduce the fat, but the mixture was too runny to make a patty. Instead, I poured the mixture into a muffin tin and baked it at 350 (175C) for about half an hour. It came out great and I would definitely make it again. I also added celery salt and some dill. I'm giving the recipe four stars because it was a great idea and a good base.



I was really excited to try this recipe as I need more iron in my diet but I don't like spinach all that much. Well, I'd eat these spinach pancakes any day! Though I did make a couple of mistakes, accidentally leaving out one of the eggs and using baking powder. I wouldn't advise either of these changes as my patties were a bit too fat and never really got crispy, and my husband said they were too floury. I will try them again and update my rating then!

Update:Well, I tried these again, this time following the recipe (except that I added a little grated parmesan!), and they were much better. They never really got crispy, maybe because I didn't flatten them enough, but I really liked them the way they were.



I was so surprised this hadn't been reviewed yet! I would give it 6 stars if I could, because it's SPINACH and it's so GOOD! I followed the recipe exactly. Even my toddler son ate them, which is unusual with them being green and all. Make sure to keep them warm in a 200 degree oven if not serving right away, although they are best eaten immediately! This can even satisfy a craving for something fried, although much healthier than most fried foods! I will make this again and again!
