Dill is another excellent ingredient. It does not contain cholesterol and is very low in calories. It gives your dish a unique flavor. Nonetheless, it contains many antioxidants, vitamins such as pyridoxine, niacin and dietary fibers, which helps you manage your blood cholesterol levels. You can also use other spices that you like as well.

Gouda is our top pick for cheese, but almost any cheese would work well in this recipe. Try adding shredded cheddar for a bit of color. 

These fritters are great for on the go snacking or served hot for breakfast. You can enjoy them with a dollop of sour cream on top or even use them as hamburger patties for a bunless treat.
