Cheesy Corn Fritters

cheesy corn fritters

I had never heard of cheesy corn fritters until I came across this post by Eatwell101. I have to say, I was intrigued, to say the least. I thought the corn fritters looked super delicious and vibrant, perfect to try during the spring/summer season. I love eating veggies that are in season and there’s nothing like some sweet corn, am I right or what? Don’t worry, for this recipe you can use canned sweet corn and it will come out equally delicious.

I’m not sure if fried cheesy corn fritters are a southern thing but I’m so happy that I decided to give this recipe a try because they are easily a new favorite side dish. We served these with grilled chicken and it was the perfect compliment. I adapted the Eatwell101 recipe because I found the batter too loose. The tweaks I made allowed for a firmer fritter that had a little bite. I enjoyed this recipe and hope you will too.

This recipe is also a great base to have some fun. I can see bacon crumbles being absolutely amazing as an added ingredient and you can even add more veggies for extra nutrition. Think shredded zucchini or any other summer-appropriate veggie. I used parmesan cheese but feel free to go in with your favorite melty cheese. I think white cheddar would be incredible.
