So, I tried making these cheesy broccoli fritters the other day and wow, were they a hit! The star of the show is broccoli, transformed into these crisp, golden delights. I threw in shredded mozzarella, which does a fantastic job keeping everything together. Plus, it makes each bite wonderfully cheesy. I also added a bit of grated parmesan which amps up the flavor even more. Honestly, it’s like a cheesy heaven in each fritter.

Now, I seasoned these fritters with Spanglish Asadero’s Savory Surf & Turf seasoning. I know it’s usually meant for meats and seafood, but trust me, it’s just as amazing on veggies. It adds this unique blend of flavors that really makes the fritters pop. Besides that, some basic stuff goes in too—egg, flour, a little salt and pepper, just to get the consistency right and add that extra kick.

And for dipping? I mixed up a quick aioli with mayonnaise, parmesan, a squeeze of lemon juice, and yes, a tiny sprinkle of the Surf & Turf seasoning for continuity. It’s creamy, it’s tangy, and it complements the fritters perfectly. Seriously, you’ve got to try making these. They’re easy, tasty, and with that aioli? Just irresistible.

Can I substitute the broccoli for other vegetables?

Absolutely, there are a bunch of veggies that you can swap in for broccoli to make some fantastic fritters. First up, how about cauliflower? Just like broccoli, it has a mild flavor that really takes on the seasoning well, and it gets beautifully crispy when fried. Another great option is zucchini. It’s a bit softer, but it shreds nicely and pairs wonderfully with cheese.

If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, why not try shredded sweet potatoes? They add a natural sweetness that contrasts really nicely with the savory flavors. Plus, they crisp up on the outside just right. And then there’s corn. Imagine sweet kernels that burst with flavor in every bite, combined with that cheesy, savory goodness. Whichever veggie you choose, I’m sure it’ll turn out delicious with that Surf & Turf seasoning giving it a nice punch.
