I was going to try baking the fritters instead of frying them, to reduce the fat, but the mixture was too runny to make a patty. Instead, I poured the mixture into a muffin tin and baked it at 350 (175C) for about half an hour. It came out great and I would definitely make it again. I also added celery salt and some dill. I'm giving the recipe four stars because it was a great idea and a good base.

A good, basic recipe, thanks! It requires so few ingredients that I decided to give it a try yesterday (I had almost nothing in my fridge!):) However I altered the recipe as such which, in my opinion, makes it 4 stars worth: 1 cup drained spinach mixed with 1 Tbsp mustard, 1 cup steamed & mashed potatoes, a bit of fresh parsley, a grating of nutmeg, 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Overwise I followed the directions ;) It was really good and easy.

I was really excited to try this recipe as I need more iron in my diet but I don't like spinach all that much. Well, I'd eat these spinach pancakes any day! Though I did make a couple of mistakes, accidentally leaving out one of the eggs and using baking powder. I wouldn't advise either of these changes as my patties were a bit too fat and never really got crispy, and my husband said they were too floury. I will try them again and update my rating then!<br><br><u>Update</u>:Well, I tried these again, this time following the recipe (except that I added a little grated parmesan!), and they were much better. They never really got crispy, maybe because I didn't flatten them enough, but I really liked them the way they were.

I was so surprised this hadn't been reviewed yet! I would give it 6 stars if I could, because it's SPINACH and it's so GOOD! I followed the recipe exactly. Even my toddler son ate them, which is unusual with them being green and all. Make sure to keep them warm in a 200 degree oven if not serving right away, although they are best eaten immediately! This can even satisfy a craving for something fried, although much healthier than most fried foods! I will make this again and again!

For a little variation, I used fresh spinach and I sauted it in Italian dressing. After the pancakes were done, I topped it off with a squeeze of lemon.

If you find they're not crispy enough, it's because you didn't drain the spinach well. I enjoyed mine very much. I seasoned with celery salt and garlic powder, in addition to the salt, pepper, and paprika already called for. I ate them with tzatziki sauce.

These were very good. I added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, and served with Mom's Dill Sauce. A new and interesting way of serving spinach!

I decided to put garlic powder in these instead of the paprika and I really, really liked them. My hubby and my two-year-old also liked them. My 7 year old liked them only if they were dipped in Ranch dressing (which was delicious) but my 14-year-old didn't care for them at all. Oh well, can't please all of the people all of the time!! :)
