RECIPE: Zucchini, Halloumi & Sprout Fritters

Fritters are a great way to get some extra veggies into the kids.  These fritters, just like the humble brussel sprout divided our table in an instant!  Hubby and I loved them with the word “addictive” being thrown around, the kids, on the other hand, reached for the salad.  If your family loves sprouts or you would like to try a new fritter recipe then give this one a go, just be prepared for the grumbles if they aren’t a favourite.
