Black Eyed Pea Fritters with bacon, egg, and sweet chili sauce


So, lots of opportunities to make shit up on the fly in this meal.

I made the fritters, (black eyed peas, a chopped onion, some red pepper flakes, an egg, a little apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper, a quarter cup of water, all in a food processor until whipped up) and dropped them into a wok full of hot oil, where they promptly disintegrated. So I back-tracked, added panko and more egg to keep them together, and pan-fried them just like falafels. I wanted to serve these with bacon and a soft-boiled egg, but my soft-boiled eggs were too soft-boiled.

So, I fried the little boogers.

They turned out awesome! Perfectly round and soft and delicioso.

Plated them with a couple of small slices of bacon and drizzled them with the sweet chili dipping sauce, and served a roasted broccoli with anchovies on the side.

All in all, a very nice little meal.
