Corned Beef Fritters


  • 2 oz self raising flour or plain flour

  • pinch salt

  • 1 egg (fresh or dried)

  • dash of milk

  • pinch of herbs (I used Thyme)

  • 2 teaspoons grated onion

  • 6 oz corned beef finely flaked

  • a little dripping or margarine (or cooking oil)


  1. Mix and blend the flour with the salt, beaten egg and dash of milk

  2. Beat until a smooth batter is achieved

  3. Add corned beef, onions and herbs

  4. Melt the dripping or fat in a frying pan

  5. Drop in a spoonful of the mixture and press down to form a small patty (mixture should be enough to make 8)

  6. Fry on either side until crisp and brown and serve with veggies or salad while warm.

Makes enough for 4 people

We would love people to try them for themselves and send in photos to so that we can post on our website.
