Courgette Fritters with Poached Eggs

cook 20 mins
  • 4 courgettes, grated
  • 4 tablespoons self-raising flour
  • 40 g (1 3/4 oz) Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • pepper
  • Place the grated courgette, flour and grated Parmesan in a bowl and mix together well.
  • Squeeze into walnut-sized balls and then gently flatten.
  • Heat the oil in a deep frying pan and, working in batches if necessary, fry the fritters for 2–3 minutes on each side, until golden.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a gentle simmer and stir with a large spoon to create a swirl. Carefully break 2 eggs into the water and cook for 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
  • Serve the fritters topped with the poached eggs and sprinkled with pepper.
