Leeks! I've done Kale Leek Frittata, Potato Leek Soup and Leek Pasta with Toasted Bread Crumbs. What next? FRITTERS! Anything fried, right?
So I looked up a few recipes and saw this one for Potato Leek Fritters. I modified it a bunch. I used 3 potatoes, which is more than the recipe calls for and 2 eggs which is less. I also omitted the cheese, which I know would have been really yummy.
What I liked about this recipe is that it called for me to boil garlic with the potatoes, then add the leeks. I have never ever boiled garlic. But it was fantastic. The smell was wonderful especially after I added the leeks. After everything boiled down I drained then mashed it and added some salt and pepper and really good extra virgin olive oil. I let that cool then mixed in beaten eggs and bread crumbs. I eyeballed everything making sure it was thick enough to form into fritters. I let that sit for a bit to come together then fried them. These would be perfect with this garlic mayo I was just put onto and sour cream of course.
