How to Make Red Robin Flavored Mushroom Broccoli Fritters with a Spicy Mayo Dip
These Red Robin Flavored Mushroom Broccoli Fritters can be a side dish, snack or an appetizer. You can purchase the Red Robin seasoning from Walmart. Makes 8 fritters Total Time: 45 minutes.
1 teaspoon butter
16 oz mushrooms
2 – 3 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
About 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1/2 teaspoon Red Robin Seasoning (or your favorite seasoned salt)
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup shredded sharp, flavorful cheese like fontina or asiago
1/3 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
Clean the mushrooms, then chop roughly. Heat a medium frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter in the pan, then add the mushrooms and garlic and saute for a few minutes until the mushrooms are tender. If the mushrooms get dry during the saute, add a splash of wine. Remove from heat and press lightly with a clean towel to remove some of the moisture.
Meanwhile, steam the broccoli until it’s just turned bright green and is still fairly crisp (not crisp tender yet). Remove from heat and dump out onto a flat surface, using a clean towel to remove any excess moisture. Chop the broccoli into small bits.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and seasoning until frothy, then add the breadcrumbs and the cheeses. Stir in the chopped broccoli and mushrooms. Shape into 8 patties and put them on the baking sheet, allowing a little breathing space between your fritters.
Bake for 15 minutes on one side, then flip the fritters and bake for 15 minutes on the other side. Serve warm.
