    Kathi

    Very yummy! I am not much of a vegetable eater but i did enjoy these. Making the patties and frying them was a little labor intensive especially since i made a double batch. I dont know what i was thinking when i made that decision.

    These look amazing! Thank you. Do you have fiber/net carb info? Newly diagnosed diabetic, trying to figure it out.

      Layla

      There are about 4 carbs per fritter and 1 fiber making them 3 net carbs per fritter. I hope that helps!
