Here’s my recipe for the delicious Corn & Cheese Fritters. This recipe makes about a dozen 2″ fritters and can easily be doubled to make more.
One thing about these fritters, you want to fry them up nice and crisp so don’t make the patty too thick. When the Corn & Cheese fritters are too thick the middle doesn’t cook well and you end up with a raw batter center, yuck!
1 1/2 cup flour
1 large can (15.25 Oz. size) corn kernels
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded cheese, preferably cheddar, monteray jack, or a combination of both
1 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tbs. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped chives or green onions
Oil for frying
Sour cream & chopped chives or green onions for topping
Mix all dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients except the oil to the flour mixture.
Mix well until all the flour has been incorporated. Batter will be very thick, do not water it down.
Heat about 1/2′ oil in frying pan.
Drop spoonfuls of batter into hot oil. Lightly press down on each patty to spread it out and thin the patty to about 1/2′ thick.
Fry until golden brown turning each patty as the first side brown.
Drain on paper towel.
Serve garnished with chopped chive or green onions and a dollop of sour cream.
