This is a wonderful dish when you have a crowd of people over, it makes a great dish, if making several like a buffet style meal or it also is a great appetizer to present while you are finishing up on the main affair. I prefer to serve it like this as they are really the best, eaten straight away, whilst crunchy and hot. It also gives your guests something to pick at, while they are chatting amongst themselves before a meal. These are also great to make as a snack, to sit and munch on, on a lazy Sunday afternoon whilst watching your favourite team play (don't forget your cold beer). I love the dip that goes with these and I feel it compliments all the flavour in the fritters very well. These are also excellent for vegetarian guests even the most strictest ones. I have had guests that can not even eat egg, these work really well as you just use egg substitute instead.
