Brussels sprout fritters, fried morsels made with one of my very favorite veggies on earth. I have come here today to share my idea of heaven.
We made these before we went camping last week and I have been DYING to share the recipe ever since. But you see, I knew they needed a special post to accompany them. Something befitting of their wondrous entrance into this world.
As it turns out, this recipe had a story of its own up its sleeve. Something that was all at once epic and disastrous and a new challenge. When I sat down to sort through and choose pictures for this post, they had magically disappeared from my memory card. 😳😳😳
They were there the day before. And then they weren't. Poof – gone. Imagine my dismay. I'm staring at my computer screen. Blinking. Confused. Mouth-agape. In denial. They could not be gone. Impossible. The pictures looked too good. I looked everywhere for them. In every folder. In the trash bin. In every nook and cranny on our computer. Gone.
So to the Google machine I went. "how to recover missing files" "where did my pictures go?" "what the hell happened to my pictures?" "why is this happening to me?"
And eventually, (3 hours later) I found a way to recover the photos, even though they somehow erased themselves from my memory card. I don't know how it happened or why it happened – all I know is that I saved the pictures and I saved the day.
We have brussels sprout fritters and we have the pictures to prove it.
Honestly, I love these straight out of the skillet. And I have zero shame eating them directly out of the fridge. BUT – they are also delicious for more legit breakfast and brunch situations. Perhaps where there is fresh fruit, maybe a tofu scramble or some over-medium eggs, and a side of mimosas.
PS – Just for the photos, I whipped up a quick dipping sauce made from vegannaise, coconut milk, lemon juice, salt, and pepper – not necessary, but actually quite good. If you're interested, I can re-make and quantify the recipe for you lovely people. Leave me a comment if you want the deets! 😘
