One of my favorite recipes. I also use jiffy mix instead of cornmeal and flour, works great that way. My friends love it when I make this for a side dish. Greasy yes, but oh so delicious!!
A bit greasy, but great to use with a barbeque! I like the fritters by themselves.
From me - IF the batter is a little thick, you may thin it with either some milk or water. Also -Jiffy Mix may be substituted.
