These vegetarian potato fritters are a delicious, meat-free barbecue alternative. For a real smoky flavour, grill on a large skillet or plancha and enjoy the warm weather as they cook.


  • 3 large potatoes, grated - approx. 340g (Desiree works well, but any firm, creamy all-rounder would be fine)
  • Half a white onion, sliced
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 80g plain flour
  • 200g tinned sweetcorn
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 120g cheddar cheese, grated
  • Olive oil
  • Plain Greek yoghurt
  • Fresh chives, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. 1Grate the potatoes into a kitchen towel and squeeze as much moisture out of them as possible.
  2. 2In a bowl, mix the potatoes with the onion, eggs, sweetcorn, flour, garlic powder, baking soda and cheddar cheese. Stir thoroughly until the mixture is evenly distributed and well combined. Don’t be scared to get your hands dirty!
  3. 3Oil and heat a large skillet or plancha on a medium to high heat on your grill of choice. Once the surface is hot (test this by adding a little bit of mixture to see if it sizzles) take a large spoonful of the mixture and drop onto the skillet.
  4. 4Once browned on one side (approx. three minutes), flip and brown the other side.
  5. 5If your BBQ has a warming shelf, place the cooked fritter on to it and repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  6. 6Serve with the Greek yoghurt and chopped fresh chives.
  7. 7Tip: If you’re not a sweetcorn fan, try mixing in grated courgette or carrot instead
