It’s Brussels sprout season. I don’t know about you, but this makes me really happy. Whether it’s a Brussels sprouts salad or roasted Brussels sprouts, I really can’t get enough of these heavenly green stalks.
Their earthy flavor reminds me that I am doing something good for my body when I eat them. This Baked Brussels Sprouts Fritter recipe is no exception. It’s healthy, yummy, and satisfying. And the citrus apple slaw is the perfect complement to these crispy “cakes.”
To make the fritters, start by preheating the KitchenAid® Combination Wall Oven to 425° F. Then prepare the Brussels sprouts. Remove them from the stalks, wash, and pat them dry.
Next, chop the Brussels sprouts by removing the remaining stalks. Then, slice the Brussels sprouts into very thin slices. I like to use my KitchenAid® Santoku Knife for chopping veggies. It has cullens (indentations) that help release food from the blade when slicing and chopping.
Transfer the Brussels sprouts to a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix.
Grab a couple tablespoons of the mixture in your hand and give it a good squeeze so it binds together. Form patties and place on a baking sheet.
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the fritters are browned and cooked in the center. I love my Combination Wall Oven because it provides consistent heating and even cooking with its Even-Heat™ True Convection technology. The fritters came out without burnt edges or undercooked centers.
The slaw is optional, but I highly recommend it. I’m in love. I could eat this slaw by itself all day long. It makes a refreshing winter salad. Making the slaw is simple. Add all of the ingredients (listed below) to a bowl and mix.
To serve, add a scoop of the slaw on top of the fritters. Garnish with some parsley. I really love winter vegetables like Brussels sprouts. What do you think? Do you love or hate Brussels sprouts? If you’re a hater, I’m hoping this recipe might turn you into a lover of these healthy veggies.
