  2. To make fritters, beat egg whites and a pinch of salt with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  3. Whisk egg yolks and ricotta until combined. Stir in parmesan, flour and onions. Season. Fold in egg white in two batches.
  4. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Cook ¼ cups of mixture for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown and just cooked through.
  6. Whisk oil and lemon juice in a bowl. Add rocket and toss to combine.
  7. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat. Cook bacon for 1-2 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  8. Serve fritters topped with bacon, rocket, relish and feta.


  • For a spicier relish, leave the seeds in the chilli. If you prefer a sweeter relish, add a teaspoon of brown sugar
  • You can replace the spring onions for fresh herbs - parsley, chives or sage would all work well
