Delicious breakfast fritter



The corn fritter can be found on every breakfast menu and is the ‘go to’ for every indecisive café order. Becoming increasingly bored with your run-of-mill corn fritter, we decided that this iconic breakfast item needed a much-deserved revamp.

Who would have thought the humblest of frozen vegetables, the pea, would be the inspiration to reboot this café classic? Not only are these fritters nutritionally stacked but they also serve as a well balanced vegetarian option. Barambah feta is the absolute star of these fritters. You can taste the quality; it is what makes them so delicious.

Served hot or cold, these delicious morsels are something to get excited about. An easy and versatile option for any occasion or meal and when paired with a delicious dipping sauce you can make them a little bit fancy.
