Fresh corn fritters

Tired of eating corn on the cob, corn off the cob, corn with butter, corn with peppers, etc?  I found a recipe in an antique cookbook for Corn Fritters and it looked good enough to put into the blog.  I tried this for a snack for the kids this afternoon.  It is pretty bland but tasty.  I would definately recommend some sauce of some type for dipping or a strong cheese like parmesan or chedder stirred right into the batter.  I also thought that these fritters would make a nice base for something Mexican- like top them with ground beef, cheese, lettuce, and salsa- like a tostada or something.  You might also (if you like them) stir in a few chopped  hot peppers for kick.

 

Here’s the recipe:

2 C. corn

1 Tbl minced, dry onion or fresh onion (1/4 cup or so) chopped

3 Tbl. milk

1 1/3 C. flour

1/2 C. melted butter

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

Combine this and then add:

3 beaten eggs

Drop by spoonful onto a greased skillet/griddle.  Brown lightly and flip to brown the other side.    I have also seen similar recipes for zucchini- you shred it up into a similar mixture- get creative and try some!
