Cranks My Tractor

Published: Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 09:15 AM.

In my mind, I thought I could get all of these things to stay together and pull off dollops to fry or bake as fritters.  The mixture was not sticking together.  A friend asked what I used as a “base.”  If that means, “How did you get the stuff to stay together?”  I’ll tell you – I could not at first.

I started with a little corn starch, which didn’t help much.  Then I began toasting slices of “Ezekiel Bread” to smash up and use as bread crumbs.  With a name like Ezekiel Bread, I was hoping for a miracle.

I got one.

I took dollops of the mixture, dipped them in egg and coated them in Bisquick.  They made nice looking baked fritters that I served to my children with peach preserves.

Mama would have been proud.

I do not recommend doing this at home and no, I do not have a recipe.

What I do know is that every day we get a basket full of stuff that we aren’t expecting and are not so sure what to do with.
