These are excellent with maple syrup! Good for brunch or as an appetizer. A bit different than corn fritters... there is no leavening and these are not deep fried but pan fried in a bit of butter.

  • 14 cup flour
  • 12 teaspoon salt

Delicious, easy to make, I first made Corn Oysters over 55 years ago. Hadn't made them in years. I don't remember where I got the recipe or if it was like this one. These are so good and will be making them again. DH really likes them.

This is a family favorite. I use frozen corn (supersweet white) straight from the bag. After frying a few at a time, I hold them in a hot oven on a cookie sheet. They lose a little crispness this way, but it's the best I can do. I always have to make a lot of these because there never seem to be enough. Simple, homey and delicious, and a great compliment to almost any meal.
