I wouldn't have tried this recipe if I didn't have just too much beets at home. So glad I tried it! These fritters are the best that could happen to beets! Much lighter than potato fritters. Slight change I made, I used 2 eggs instead of 1. Next time I may add a bit of garlic as well. I highly recommend it not only for beet lovers.
