Swiss Fritters

As much as I love to keep things healthy, every once in awhile I like to fry cheese, because I love fried cheese. A lot. These fritters bring together the wholesomeness of cauliflower, chives, goat Swiss cheese, and eggs and a frying pan. These are so delicious and gone in minutes. They are also wonderful as a cold snack (yo wassup 3am), and can be crumbled into a salad, used as the “meat” for a sandwich, or even cut and mixed into some scrambled eggs.

Form small, flat patties with your hand and delicately place them in a frying pan onto oil that is sizzles when you splash water at it.

Handle the patties delicately, as they will fall apart until fully cooked on both sides. Flip after 2 minutes on each side, or until a crusty brown. When finished, place them on a plate covered with paper towel to absorb excess oil.
