A lot of people think that being a vegetarian is difficult because you can’t find filling healthy meals, but they are totally wrong! When I stumbled across this recipe for Corn Fritters I was super excited. While I am not a huge fan of corn, my husband is, and I knew cooked this way I wouldn’t mind it so much. The recipe I followed from Alexandra’s Kitchen was a little confusing, mostly because it was up in the air what you should do with the eggs. Two eggs? Three eggs? Four eggs? Just egg whites??? Ummm, help!! After reading the comments people left her, I decided to try just one egg. I cooked up my first fritters and they did not look how I intended, and they were falling apart in the pan. I put those back in the mix, and added 2 more eggs to help bind it all together more. Success. So, I recommend 3 eggs for 3 ears of corn, but you might want to play with it as well.
These fritters turned out really delicious. In addition to the fritters I made a quick Lime Cilantro Sour Scream topping for them that was the perfect addition. Sour cream (or greek yogurt), cilantro, lime…clearly this is a winning combination.
As for you non-vegetarians out there…this would be a good side dish (maybe to some fish or chicken?), or the main event. I think everyone who likes corn would like this. I may try making these for my toddler as well, because the corn was so delicious and sweet, I think he would love it. Also, corn is in season now, so it is super cheap (5 for $1 at our local farmers market)! As for the jalepeno, it didn’t add much heat, so even if you aren’t a fan of spicy I think you would like this…or just leave it out. If you haven’t been keeping up with my blog, I had a big accident with jalapenos last month, and have refused to handle them since, so here is a big shout out to my hubby for chopping that bad boy up!
Also, a reader let me know this recipe is gluten free! So this would be a great recipe for someone with a gluten intolerance as well! Cheers!
