Chard Fritters

1 large bunch of fresh Swiss chard

2 eggs

1/2 cup Bisquick

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Vegetable oil

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (optional)


Rinse Swiss chard thoroughly. Chop, and boil until tender. Squeeze out excess water very well. Mix Swiss chard with eggs, Bisquick, salt, and pepper. In a sauté pan, warm vegetable oil until hot and gently drop a generous spoonful of the Swiss chard mixture one at a time. (Do not crowd the pan!) Fry on each side a few minutes, until golden. Sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and serve warm, or serve with caper dipping sauce.
