My mom used to make these a lot and I do too. They are easy to make, a quick meal, and a great way to get kids to eat spinach!

  • Heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a large skillet over medium heat. Spoon batter into the hot oil, keeping about 1 inch between each croquette. Cook until golden brown, about 90 seconds per side. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Note:

Substitute beer for the sparkling water, if desired.

Canola, peanut, or coconut oil can be used for frying.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
