Marmy's Corn Fritters

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by cinda37379

My Family loves corn anyway and anyhow you fix it. When I was little my marmy made these for me everytime we would visit now I make them for my grandson who loves them as much as I did! I have used frozen corn when I had no fresh...was still good! Sometime we eat them as snacks or appetizers and use a sourcream and chive dip. Guessing at prep time depends on how fast you are at cutting the corn off the cob.

These were a nice change for a side dish. I used frozen corn (thawed), which I roughly and very briefly pulsed in the food processor to make it a bit more pulpy like fresh corn. I used two 12-oz bags and increased the other ingredients to make up for it. I threw in an odd half cup or so of leftover brown rice (which no one noticed) just to use it up. I added a bit of milk since I did not have the corn cob 'juice,' and although I used more egg, I did not use all the yolks just to keep it lighter. I added garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, and a bit of cilantro. I found that these cooked better and faster if I was fairly scanty with each one and if I spread it out with a spoon. Also, after flipping, I found that squishing them out a bit was helpful. But they were great to work with, not sticky, and easy to do. I served them with green beans and some shredded BBQ-y chicken. Thanks. --M
