Simple and quick. Different from the other recipes in that the corn is wrapped in wax paper. Adjustable to any reasonable amount of corn. Would be ideal for someone cooking for one or two. From Kraft Food + Family. The butter is listed as an optional ingredient since you really don't need it, but I enjoy melting a huge blob of it on my corn after it's done :-)
These little Venezuelan griddle cakes, known as arepas in Spanish, can be eaten at any time of the day, topped with cheese, meat, chicken, or eggs. You can top them with roast pork or a spoonful of pico de gallo as a delicious side or tempting appetizer. You use nonstick cooking spray quite a bit for this, but I like to use an olive oil spritzer. Enjoy!
My daughter Andrea has loved this stuff since she was little. It's a recipe that has been handed down form generation to generation. Now, Andrea makes it anytime we have a family dinner, Thanksgiving, etc. She has adapted it from her great grandmother's recipe to her grandmother's recipe, to her mom's recipe, to my recipe. Wonderful cream corn and cheese souffle for any occasion.
I felt special growing up in a huge Italian family of cooks from Philadelphia on my mom's side and just as happy to know my dad's mom from Alva, Oklahoma. The city family taught me all there was to know about baking and pasta making and Mediterranean cooking and the country side was all about fried chicken, biscuits and gravy and country ham with red-eye gravy and Grandma Addie's fried corn. When I make this corn people want the recipe and I am almost embarrassed to tell them how easy it is.
These fritters are especially delicious with the juice from a pork or beef roast, but just as good a side dish to any meal. If desired, they can be made without the grated cheese. This recipe makes alot of fritters, but they freeze excellent, although I doubt if there will be any leftovers, these are so delicious! Cooking time is for each fritter, and is only approximate, it depends on the size of the fritters.
If you are a corn lover, then this is a easy recipe you should try, it goes great along side of anything, and is very simple to prepare. Try this recipe using fresh cooked corn removed from the cob...soooooo good, throw in some grated cheddar cheese too! Double the recipe if desired.
This is the recipe my mother has been using for years. It was given to her by her good friend, Thresa Brain. I fill our 5 quart pan with 3 or 4 batches. I don't like a lot of liquid when it comes to packing this. To avoid this, I only use 1/4 cup water.
