Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh or canned corn kernels
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Sour cream or salsa for serving (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Batter:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the corn kernels, shredded cheddar cheese, all-purpose flour, cornmeal, finely chopped green onions, eggs, milk, baking powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  1. Heat the Oil:
  • In a large skillet or frying pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. You’ll need enough oil to submerge the fritters halfway.
  1. Form the Fritters:
  • Using a spoon or scoop, carefully drop spoonfuls of the corn batter into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Flatten slightly with the back of the spoon to form round fritters.
  1. Fry Until Golden Brown:
  • Fry the fritters in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Use a spatula to flip them halfway through cooking.
  1. Drain and Serve:
  • Once golden and crispy, transfer the cooked fritters to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  • Repeat the frying process with the remaining batter until all the fritters are cooked.
  1. Serve Warm:
  • Serve the Cheesy Corn Fritters warm, garnished with additional chopped green onions if desired.
  • Serve with sour cream or salsa on the side for dipping, if desired.
