Corned beef fritters

The first sunny day in a few, theres no wind or rain and its actually fairly pleasant outside…. but Im indoors nursing an ear infection and a sniffly cold.

These fritters were great, and the fritter left over will make a great sandwich for MrC for tomorrow.


2oz self raising flour or plain flour

pinch salt

1 egg yolk

1/8 pint milk or milk and water

pinch dried herbs

1 tsp grated onion

1 tsp chopped parsley

6 oz corned beef, flinely flaked

1 oz cooking fat


Blend the flour with the salt, egg and milk (or milk and water)

Beat until smooth batter then add the herbs, onion, parsley and corned beef.

Melt the cooking fat in a frying pan and when really hot, drop in spoonfuls of the batter mixture.

Fry on either side until crisp and brown. Serve as soon as possible.

  1. A great addition to your experiment, although they carried on long after the war. Great post and love what you’re doing with this, a really good idea.

  2. Hi Ive been taking a look at your blog, and find it fascinating.
    To think that you can keep a family of 5 on £70 a week is some achievement.
    Well done, i will be looking at your blog on a regular basis from now on i think.
    thank you.

    • Hiya, Thanks so much…. we actually we keep our family of five on £30 per week… which was hard to begin with, but after we realised how much waste we were making and food we were throwing away, we realised this £30 worth of food was what we actually NEEDE to eat.
      We’d cut out all the unnecessery junk food and make everything from scratch… which is always cheaper 😀
