Celeriac fritters

Prep 20 min
Total 35 min
Makes 16 fritters



4 slices
thick-cut bacon, chopped
2 tbsp
6 cups
peeled and coarsely grated celeriac, (about 1 small)
1/2 cup
grated onion
eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup
all-purpose flour
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
Gala apple, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 cup
2 tbsp
chopped chives


  • PREHEAT oven to 250F. Place a rack on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • COOK bacon in a large frying pan over medium until crisp, 4 to 5 min. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate. Pour bacon drippings and canola oil into a small bowl.
  • COMBINE celeriac, onion, eggs, flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  • HEAT 2 tbsp oil mixture in the same frying pan over medium. Pack celeriac mixture into 1/4-cup portions, carefully turning each one into pan. Flatten into 3-in. wide fritters with a spatula. Cook until golden and crispy, 3 to 4 min per side. Transfer to prepared rack and place in oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining celeriac mixture, adding 1 tbsp more oil mixture for each batch.
  • SERVE fritters topped with apple slices, sour cream, bacon and chives.



Kitchen tip: Use the grate attachment on your food processor to prepare the celeriac.

Kitchen tip: If you make these without bacon, increase canola oil to 5 tbsp.
