RECIPE: Zucchini & Bacon Rosti

I’m always looking for new ideas to change up our veggies.  We’re a fan of fritters and if you are, you’re going to love these little gems as well as some of our others, cauliflower fritters and corn & zucchini fritter, they are also winners.  These delicious little rosti’s had a delightful crunch and the bacon was enough to convince Master 9 to give them a go.  The leftovers were perfect for my lunchbox the next day so if you’re after a new side give these ones a try.
