This is a great luncheon or light dinner recipe! The pie crust made from bread works really well and is much easier than pastry. I think it originally came from the Australian Womans Weekly. I've been making it for years. Serve it with a tossed green salad and some chips (fries)on the side.
This is a recipe that I adopted after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. His original comments were, "Add a little zest to corn. So simple and tasty." My original review stated, "Thumbs up from my hubby. He loves corn, but I don't prepare it often due to the high carb content. He was in heaven with this recipe. We served it as a side to grilled turkey mignons, grilled sweet potato slices, and a simple salad. I had been lucky to find fresh corn and loved how its sweetness contrasted with the heat of the chipotle. I am sure that he will request this recipe again." We HAVE made this again and again...both with fresh corn in season, and with frozen sweet corn. My husband does love this.
These bear no resemblance to hamburgers other than being delicious in a bun with the same sort of topping. The "batter" will keep, covered, in the fridge, for up to a week making this an extremely convenient and delicious lunch or quick supper dish, or you can make tiny ones and serve as an appetizer. NOTE: I continue to make these regularly, and not surprisingly, don't make them the same every time. I often omit the Jalapeno and ginger, and instead add an extra grated zucchini and a tablespoon of mild curry powder.
