A delightful combination of flavours, these carrot, apple and cheese fritters are great if you need some yummy nibbles before your meal. Soft and cheesy, with a salty and peppery taste, they are lovely on their own, but you can also dip them in any cheese sauce, sour cream, ketchup or chilli sauce.
