When it comes to fresh produce, one sweet summer staple is corn. And though eating it off the cob is a delicious way to enjoy it, it’s never a bad idea to switch up the variety of how you enjoy your corn. One delightful way is to consider corn fritters.
A versatile way to change up the seasoning and form, corn fritters are a corn cake batter that is gently fried for a thin, crispy outside and a soft and moist inside. So if you have a ton of summer sweet corn from your garden or your last farmers market run, you’ll want to consider making them into fritters. Here’s why:
You Can Sneak in Other Veggies
Have a picky eater that refuses to eat their veggies? Here’s a way to sneak in some veggies. Zucchini and carrots can be added into a corn fritter recipe without really altering the flavor all too much. If you are looking for a bit more spice, you can add in peppers, also.
It’s Quick and Easy to Make
For most recipes, fresh or frozen corn can be used, and with slight prep and a quick fry, they can virtually be made and served with ease. Only a few ingredients are needed, and prep is relatively fast, making it an excellent option for many busy families.
You Can Freeze and Reheat With Ease
The batter can be premade and stored in the fridge the day before. If you want to make a big batch, you can save the rest in the freezer. You can then thaw and reheat in a pan or toaster oven. Making it a great last-minute dinner option.
