Bacon & Corn Fritters

This recipe is one of the reasons why when I am making bacon, I always cook a few extra strips and store them in the refrigerator because I know I can find some way to sneak those tasty morsels into something.  It's another reason why mixing this recipe together only took five minutes.  I used a half-cup scoop measure and fried them in a well-oiled pan for four minutes on the first side and three minutes on the second over medium heat.  I'm going to use any leftovers to make a sandwich with fried green tomatoes and avocado!

3 c. fresh or frozen corn
6 strips, thick-cut bacon - fried and diced
4 green onions, chopped
2 tbsp. sugar
1 c. buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. AP flour

Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl, then allow to sit and rest for five minutes.  Place roughly 1/4 cup oil into a fry pan over medium high heat and when oil begins to shimmer reduce heat to medium.  Using a half-cup measure place fritter mixture into pan, I usually get two in a pan and fry on one side for four minutes, then turn and fry for another two.  Check doneness before you flip, it should be a golden brown color - if not, turn your heat up otherwise reduce heat if too brown.  Serve - I like to drizzle them with Burton's maple syrup.

  1. Solid recipe sir, but I agree, Mr. Burton's liquid gold takes any recipe up a notch
