D’Orsogna Salami and Zucchini Fritters

Welcome to the first of 10 videos and recipes I filmed with Matt Golinski for D’Orsogna.  Over the coming weeks we have some great family friendly recipes created by Matt using D’Orsogna Smallgoods as well as a giveaway each week to help with the weekly grocery bill.

This week Matt Golinski and I have D’Orsogna Salami and Zucchini Fritters. These were so easy to make and are packed full of flavour and some hidden vege to keep everyone happy.  These are perfect enjoyed with a side salad for a complete meal or with a dipping sauce for entertaining or afternoon tea.

The D’Orsogna Salami bursts through with its flavour as you bite into these crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside fritters.

    A lovely spin on the traditional zucchini slice that I have made heaps of times – will definitely make this again! The salami flavour is awesome! (and the picky child who doesn’t like zucchini, has no idea!). Will try adding some grated carrot next time as well.

  2. Tarryn July 7, 2014 at 8:01 am #

    Looks like a great recipe that is nice and simple. One that the kids can quickly make too! Thanks 🙂

  3. Jocelyn R July 7, 2014 at 8:20 am #

    I like to hide zucchini and carrot – I’m sure my kids know they are there, but the veggies do make the fritters taste better!

  4. Narelle Rock July 7, 2014 at 8:28 am #

    I love to add grated zucchini and carrot and maybe some corn kernals.

  5. Angela Hogan July 7, 2014 at 9:21 am #


  6. Jeannette July 7, 2014 at 11:04 am #

    I like to use lots of grated vegetables in my fritters, my children eat them up without the usual fuss.

  7. Sharon Green July 7, 2014 at 12:10 pm #

    All sorts of veggies!!

  8. Caroline Hannessen July 7, 2014 at 2:36 pm #

    Asparagus – they all hate it and they all eat it 😀

  9. Marie July 7, 2014 at 3:01 pm #

    Any & as many vegetables as I have available at the time such as spinach, grated carrot, celery, cabbage even grated sweet potato & grated cauliflower to encourage my family especially the kids to eat more vegies. They will always eat these vegies when they are disguised this way!

  10. Caroline Shanks July 7, 2014 at 3:31 pm #

    Always love the op for a good vegie smuggling. Anything and everything best unseen especially if it’s green.

  11. Thai Berrenson July 7, 2014 at 4:26 pm #

    broccoli or cauliflower as my kids really dont like them

  12. kerrie July 7, 2014 at 5:36 pm #

    It is always spinach, especially in the quiche. Stick to the same vegetable all the time then they get use to seeing it and eat it.

  13. Leanne White July 7, 2014 at 6:24 pm #

    All the vegetables I hide in my bolognese would actually go well in these fritters so I’d be adding capsicum, carrot and celery. All the things the kids tell me they hate 😉

  14. Joanne July 7, 2014 at 7:14 pm #

    Tofu – great protein for vegetarians but no-one in our house likes it! Fritters hide it perfectly!

  15. linda Hynson July 7, 2014 at 7:33 pm #

    left over vegies from the night before-tasty and thrifty!!

  16. Kate Dvornik July 7, 2014 at 7:40 pm #

    Any veggies I can…usually carrots, zucchini and spinach!

  17. Rachael July 7, 2014 at 7:42 pm #

    My kids are wise to anything that’s green haha so I peel the zucchini and add carrots and creamed corn…pretty much anything I can! Can’t out smart Mummy 🙂

  18. Laura Scriven July 7, 2014 at 8:04 pm #

    Spinach, Carrot and Corn,
    Items that make the kids yawn!
    Filling tums,
    But they still taste yum!

  19. Melissa K July 7, 2014 at 8:35 pm #

    sweet corn, carrot, onion and zucchini. Fritters are a great vegie smuggler, my kids love them!

  20. Belinda July 7, 2014 at 9:02 pm #

    As many veggies as I can so my kids think they are eating something yummy without the fuss of thinking they are actually veggies

  21. sapna July 7, 2014 at 10:41 pm #

    bell pepper,spinach and onion – my son will eat these things in the fritters and will be rejected otherwise…

  22. Shelley July 8, 2014 at 5:45 am #

    Honestly nothing. Both my kid, 6 and 2, are great veggie eaters! It’s having enough food in the house to keep up with them that’s the trouble!

  23. Katrina P July 8, 2014 at 6:43 am #

    Definitely grated zucchini! In our household, vegies sing “it’s not easy being green”, because they are instantly despised by my children!

  24. Amy Ginis July 8, 2014 at 7:33 am #

    I like to hide Carrots and Corn!

  25. Amanda Harris July 8, 2014 at 9:18 am #

    It’s a win/win situation when I serve up delicious meals packed with hidden, finely grated carrot, onion and zucchini 🙂

  26. Kristina S July 8, 2014 at 9:46 am #

    Grated Zucchini only way I can get them to eat it

  27. Alma G July 8, 2014 at 1:01 pm #

    Any veggie that is heading towards the end of it’s life. I hate food waste and fritters are the perfect way of using up old veggies.

  28. Maree D July 8, 2014 at 3:12 pm #

    Zucchini!! I love how it adds a bit of moisture but also takes on the flavour of whatever it’s mixed with. Perfect little hider!

  29. eden mcgill July 8, 2014 at 3:16 pm #

    Corn and peas! Also whatever vegies I can pack in and hide from the kids!

  30. tracy wedding July 8, 2014 at 7:05 pm #

    These look delicious Im going to make them for dinner and Ill hide as many vegies as I can in them

  31. Sarah T July 8, 2014 at 8:18 pm #

    My little boy loves his veggies, so I don’t need to hide them as such, but I love to pack them full of grated sweet potato! the best!

  32. Alicia Bardsley July 9, 2014 at 7:21 am #

    As many vegies as possible particularly broccoli as it is the one vegie the boys will not eat.

  33. Natalie Stoute July 9, 2014 at 8:29 am #

    I like to hide finely shredded cabbage anywhere I can! Even through their two minute noodles 🙂

  34. Irene Pelow July 9, 2014 at 9:07 am #

    Nice easy and nutritious recipe that the kids can help make in the kitchen.

  35. Linda De July 9, 2014 at 9:18 am #

    Making these this evening, Always have problems getting veg into one of my boys, these ARE going to work

  36. Jayne K July 9, 2014 at 10:14 am #

    Veggie purees of whatever kind I can sneak in. Then I tell ’em what they’ve eaten and watch them go green!

  37. Melissa Ware July 9, 2014 at 10:46 am #

    I love zucchini and any recipes that use it plus the kids are obsessed with Salami at the moment. This will be a real treat to make !

  38. Fiona July 9, 2014 at 11:04 am #

    Broccoli and caulifower

  39. Kasey Evans July 9, 2014 at 11:09 am #

    As many tasty vegetables as I can because I have fussy children who think vegetables are gross yet when they are hidden they love them!

  40. Mrs B July 9, 2014 at 11:49 am #

    grated onion is a good one as it cannot be seen

  41. karina l July 9, 2014 at 12:18 pm #

    Last night’s leftovers. They taste great when they have been frittered!

  42. Stacey Shailer July 9, 2014 at 12:21 pm #

    All those bits and pieces that like to lurk in the bottom of the vegie crisper or in packets at the back of the fridge…limp carrots, spinach that is starting to wilt, the last few bites of cheese that was forgotten about when a new packet was opened. I have a clean out on the weekend, cook them up in fritters, then wrap and freeze in individual portions, perfect for adding to a school lunchbox on busy mornings during the week.

  43. Linda Courtney July 9, 2014 at 12:39 pm #


  44. Louise L July 9, 2014 at 12:49 pm #

    I love grating zucchini & broccoli and hiding them in fritters as the kids don’t like them but love fritters

  45. kez July 9, 2014 at 2:31 pm #

    Sweet potato. My children dont like it so I could disguise as pumpin 😛 They look great 🙂

  46. Annie July 9, 2014 at 3:12 pm #

    Fritters are one of the best meals to rework leftovers, especially from celebrations with an abundance of food like Christmas turkey and ham. Frugal, tasty and much more exciting than just sandwiches.

  47. Melanie Farrugia July 9, 2014 at 4:35 pm #


  48. Jemma Hansen July 9, 2014 at 4:41 pm #

    Left overs are always great to be made into fritters, roast lamb corned beef work really well . I also like to hide vegies, usually creamed corn , or corn kernels, grated carrot and zucchini. Your recipe looks great and has been put on my to make list.

  49. Penny George July 9, 2014 at 4:58 pm #

    I hide gold nuggets (corn kernels to you and me).
    The kids have great fun counting and eating their “treasure”

  50. Kylie July 9, 2014 at 5:54 pm #

    I love tuna and sweet corn in my fritters, or fresh chives and a nice sharp cheddar

  51. Angela July 9, 2014 at 5:56 pm #

    Everything I can! Chia seeds, carrot, zucchini and onion all hide quite nicely I find – especially when I’m heavy-handed with the cheese!

  52. Jodie F July 9, 2014 at 6:32 pm #

    I always change it up but mostly add chick peas, zucchini and spinach! The kids and hubby have no clue!!

  53. Belinda July 9, 2014 at 6:36 pm #

    I love to hide peas in my fritters, I’m not a big fan of them so its actually me I’m hiding them from and I find I’ll eat anything if its in a fritter

  54. Melanie P July 9, 2014 at 7:19 pm #

    I always hide corn and zucchini. Works a treat!

  55. Amanda Manning July 9, 2014 at 7:40 pm #

    This looks so yummy. I really need to try other types of cooking with my kids instead of cup cakes all the time.

  56. Ei July 9, 2014 at 8:19 pm #

    Oh fritters are perfect to smuggle vegetables – carrot, zucchini, corn, cabbage, mint, parsley, you name them, I’ve hid them. Lately, I’ve been hiding spices and chia seeds to introduce more flavours to my little one.

  57. Michelle July 9, 2014 at 8:25 pm #

    I like to hide different things like purple carrots, cauliflower, eggplant and once spaghetti plant. Things I know my kids won’t eat alone, but when mixed in something they eat it, say how great it is and then I tell them what was in it. This makes them happy to then try it alone in another meal – great way to introduce new veggies to kids.

  58. Cathy July 9, 2014 at 8:35 pm #

    Vegies that the kids have grown – carrots and peas. The kids are so delighted with the fresh produce that they have made, they try to find the “hidden” vege!!

  59. Karla Oleinikoff July 9, 2014 at 9:28 pm #

    Corned Beef, carrots, onion, and zucchini.

  60. Helen W July 9, 2014 at 9:59 pm #

    Silverbeet! It’s so good for everyone, chock full of iron and hides really well.

  61. karen turner July 9, 2014 at 10:33 pm #

    I like to hide zucchini as everyone in my family say they don’t like it yet none of them realise I hide them in the fritters and they love them.

  62. Abby L July 9, 2014 at 10:45 pm #

    I love hiding veggies!

  63. andreea nicolescu July 10, 2014 at 4:38 am #

    Lots of vegetables but my favorites are spinach and zucchini .

  64. Maria July 10, 2014 at 7:33 am #

    The beauty of fritters is that just about any vegetable can be hidden. So whatever I have in the fridge makes it’s way in. 🙂

  65. Janene July 10, 2014 at 8:15 am #

    Grated carrot could also be added for extra vegetable content….

  66. nicole larsen July 10, 2014 at 11:43 am #

    Lots and lots of veggies

  67. Linda T July 10, 2014 at 12:42 pm #

    I like hiding corn and chives in my fritters, my husband’s the fussy one who doesn’t particularly like corn but I love them so…this is a compromise 🙂

  68. Helga Grenkowitz July 10, 2014 at 12:57 pm #

    D’Orsogna Deli Triple Smoked Ham. I buy fresh Deli ham almost every week. And I always create a new recipe to ‘hide’ it in. Yesterday I put it together with mushrooms and broccolini in a nice cream sauce. Next time I will ‘hide’ ham and mushrooms in my fritters 🙂

  69. Cecilia Warrick July 10, 2014 at 2:02 pm #

    Carrot and potato…the two things my son won’t eat usually!

  70. Bryn Kav July 10, 2014 at 2:47 pm #

    Chocolate in egg fritters. Should see their faces!

  71. Dana July 10, 2014 at 4:32 pm #

    You can hide ANYTHING in fritters- you just need to puree it first!

  72. Faye July 10, 2014 at 5:02 pm #

    I love to hide onion (cos hubby says he doesn’t like it, although he can’t taste it in my fritters!) and all green vegies – as Master 3 doesn’t like green vegies… I tell him it’s jelly. He eats it!!

  73. Eva Kiraly July 10, 2014 at 5:08 pm #

    All the left over veges get mashed up together, it makes fritters tastier and there’s no waste, ever!

  74. Peter Herbener July 10, 2014 at 5:38 pm #

    pumpkin, carrot spinach and zucchini

  75. Alesha McRobertson July 10, 2014 at 5:56 pm #

    To hide grated carrot, zucchini & creamed corn. They’re also great for using leftover meat up in a way that everyone likes.

  76. luigi July 10, 2014 at 6:19 pm #

    Any veggies would be great for my kids who don’t really like them!

  77. Cathy Stone July 10, 2014 at 6:33 pm #

    I love to make a fritter with left over beef mince (already mixed through with a bolognaise sauce) and diced carrot, onion, tomatoes, zucchini and parsley, The kids love it as it’s their favourite meal.

  78. Mary Preston July 10, 2014 at 6:50 pm #

    I like to hide left-overs in my fritters. It’s a win/win.

  79. Karlene July 10, 2014 at 7:33 pm #

    Grated carrot

  80. Nicole C July 10, 2014 at 8:59 pm #

    All sorts of vegetables! I just have to grate some of them so my son doesn’t notice. He is a veggie investigator lol
    Zucchini & corn is always a must though!

  81. Tamara Lamb July 10, 2014 at 9:06 pm #


  82. Amanda Gorton July 11, 2014 at 5:13 am #

    My diet has vegetarian tendencies so increasing iron and encouraging kids to eat red meat is essential. It is a vital food group I feel we are seriously lacking in added to fritters is the simple solution Im looking for!

  83. Nick July 11, 2014 at 8:00 am #

    Broccoli a way to trick people to eating it!

  84. judith fasshauer July 11, 2014 at 8:36 am #

    Serrano ham , cheese and potatoes

  85. Ben July 11, 2014 at 9:21 am #

    I like to hide shredded carrot my kids hate carrots so that’s a great way to get their veggies

  86. Terri Todd July 11, 2014 at 9:29 am #

    Like any good Minion I like Banana

  87. Cheryl McKibbin July 11, 2014 at 9:39 am #

    grated cheese! i swear my kids will eat anything if cheese is involved

  88. Krystal Dee July 11, 2014 at 10:53 am #

    Superfoods. Soaked seeds and grains.

  89. Barbara Fehmel July 11, 2014 at 3:52 pm #

    There is nothing so tasty as cheese and corn in my Fritters.

  90. Mary July 11, 2014 at 4:01 pm #

    Spinach, always tastes better when it’s hidden!

  91. Alisia Cameron July 11, 2014 at 5:46 pm #

    I love to hide sweet potato, spinach and chickpeas in my fritters. I also add cheese, so when it cooks it goes a gorgeous golden colour that makes it seem a little bit indulgent and naughty… everyone thinks they are a bot of a treat! Little do they know… hehehehe!

  92. Katrina July 11, 2014 at 6:17 pm #

    My boys hate onion, so I use all the other veggies like zucchini, carrot, corn and capsicum to hide the onion! They haven’t found it yet!!!!!

  93. Nicole Morris July 11, 2014 at 6:44 pm #

    lots of veggies

  94. kristy July 11, 2014 at 7:22 pm #

    I hide leftovers, they are a good way to use up leftover vegetables, noodles, potato just about everything really.

  95. mellie jane July 11, 2014 at 8:25 pm #

    Corn, carrot, zucchini and capcicum

  96. Emily Mclaughlan July 11, 2014 at 8:39 pm #

    i love to hide spinach in my fritters yum dont like spinach on its own but in pastry or fritters delicious

  97. Charlotte S July 11, 2014 at 8:54 pm #

    Little green trees… mulched up to an unidentifiable pulp, I can hide a whole forest of broccoli in fritters!
