Dairy Farmers of Canada dropped off a little gift for me to make Mediterranean Ricotta Fritters. I love when they do this, I mean really love it. It comes in a lovely wrapped gift bag, darn should have take a picture, with all the ingredients premeasured, and ready to go. Dropped off by a lovely person from Dairy Farmers and right to my door. It is the quickest of prep times for me ever and I have a recipe whipped up in no time. Not that this recipe is difficult at all. You will also have it put together in no time.
These divine little spoons are a perfect appetizer to impress for New Year’s Eve. They are easy to make, elegant and easy to serve if you have these little spoons. If not a few on small plate would work well too. The creamy ricottoa fritter pairs gorgeously with tomato sauce and olive tapenade. I love that they are baked too, so very little mess!
Try out these yummy fritters this holiday season and your guests will surely be impressed. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
