TURNIP CARROT FRITTERS




TURNIP CARROT FRITTERS
These were so tasty.  I highly recommend frying them in bacon fat.  It gives these fritters a good flavor. My turnips are white and look like parsnips or white carrots, but they are turnips.  There is a very slight crunch from the grated carrots, but it is a pleasant sensation.  Carrots did not make me fat!  Did you know that the glycemic load (what's important to consider...not so much the glycemic index) of carrots is very low.  Here is a link re why carrots are good for us in moderation.

1 lb turnips, finely grated (0.45 kg)
2 oz finely grated carrot (60 g)
2 large eggs, fork beaten
6 tbsp Gluten-Free Bake Mix (90 mL)
 (OR use a combo of 4 tbsp almond flour and 2 tbsp coconut flour)
1/tsp salt (2 mL)
1/tsp black pepper (1 mL)
Bacon fat for frying

In large bowl, combine turnips, carrot, eggs, Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, salt and black pepper. 

In nonstick frying pan, in hot bacon fat over medium heat, place 1/cupfuls (60 mL) of mixture.  Flatten with spatula.  Do not over crowd the pan.  Cook 4 to 5 minutes per side.
