Cheesy Corn Fritters

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by FrVanilla

Leftover corn on the cob gets a starring role in these kid-pleasing, main-course dinner patties. Serve on whole wheat buns loaded with tomato slices and lettuce, or place on a bed of lightly dressed mixed greens and drizzle with salsa. From Today's Parent.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Carefully slice corn kernels from leftover cobs and set aside. Then, in a medium bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour, salt and baking soda. Add cheddar cheese and stir, then mix in corn niblets and green onion. In a separate small bowl, combine egg and milk, and whisk until frothy. Add to corn mixture and combine well.
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. To form patties, scoop batter 1/3 cup (75 mL) at a time and place in hot pan (a dry measure or ice cream scoop works well). Flatten patties slightly with the back of a large spoon; each should be about the size of a hamburger. Fry 5 to 6 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time, until patties are golden brown on both sides.
