Cooking for a Crowd: How to Keep Fritters Warm and Crispy

When you’re making fritters like quinoa patties or latkes, it’s best to serve them right out of the pan so they stay crispy. If you’re cooking for a crowd, this isn’t always possible so here’s an easy way to keep your cooked fritters warm and crispy while you make more:

In a preheated 300 degree F oven, place a baking sheet with a wire rack on top. Place cooked fritters on the wire rack as they come out of the pan until ready to serve. Using a wire rack ensures that the excess oil drips off and that the heat can circulate under the fritters, keeping both sides crispy.

If you put them straight onto a baking sheet, fritters can tend to get soggy on one side. This technique also works great for waffles and any other baked or fried item where you want the edges to stay crispy.
