ingredients

directions

  • In a medium bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  • In a large bowl beat the egg. Stir in the milk and reserved corn liquid (or water).
  • Stir in the dry ingredients and blend well.
  • Stir in the corn (if using frozen corn, defrost first) and green onions. For best results, refrigerate batter for 30 minutes.
  • In a large pan heat some oil until it bubbles when a small amount of batter is dropped inches.
  • Dip a utensil into the hot oil to coat and then measure out 1 rounded tablespoon of the cornmeal batter into the pan.
  • Cook fritters until golden on one side then turn over and cook until golden on other side.
  • Remove fritters from the pan, drain on paper towels and transfer to warming platter.
  • Serve warm with garnish of green onion slices and red pepper flakes if desired. Season with salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Yield: I eat these too fast to remember how many fritters the recipe yields! Also, be sure your cornmeal is fresh.

    These are yummy!! I made mine a little larger than directed, using half a can of corn. I served mine as a side dish to shredded beef tacos. Came together in no time. Better if you let the batter sit for a few minutes. Reheats wonderfully. Thanks for a great recipe.
