Recipe: Robiola Fritters with Marjoram

Fritters with aromatic herbs
September 20, 2010

As a child I remember the ritual of the bread baking at my grandmother's house as a kind of celebration: my grandmother kneaded an incredible amounts of dough, she made bread of any type and shape, pizza and thick bread sticks that she baked in a large wood stove.

She also fried a small portion of bread dough in an old iron frying pan, and we all enjoyed these fritters while everything else was cooked.

Growing up I made often these fritters as a snack, with a twist: the stuffing. They can be stuffed with tuna, anchovies ... but the most successful ones are always the ones with cheese and aromatic herbs.
