I am a huge fan of anything that has to do with corn. These Easy Corn Fritters are some of our absolute favorites because they are sweet and little bit spicy too. Every bite is filled with corn, gooey cheese, bacon, and jalapenos. Make them to go with all your favorites like burgers, steak, or pulled pork.

I get tired of the same old recipes and am always on the hunt to add new life to our dinner rotation. Corn is something that my kids and husband will happily gobble up.

Unfortunately, when we made these southern corn fritters, my poor husband didn’t even get one. My kids ate them before he even got home. Talk about disappointment. 🙂

Third Step: Mix in the cheese, bacon, corn, and jalapeno and stir with a wooden spoon.

Fourth Step: Place the oil and butter in a large skillet and heat to medium-high heat.

Fifth Step: After the pan is heated all the way and the butter has melted add the corn fritter mixture with a large cookie scoop. If you don’t have a large cookie scoop a spoon will work. Slightly flatten them.

NOTE: The corn mixture tends to stick to a wooden spoon or cookie scoop, so you will only be able to slightly flatten them. If you push too hard they will break.

Sixth Step: Cook for 3-5 minutes per side until they are golden brown. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. Cook until the first side has browned, then flip and cook the other side.

Seventh Step: After you remove the corn fritters from the skillet, set them on a plate with a paper towel to drain off any excess oil.

Eighth Step: Serve with sour cream, chives, spicy ranch or any other condiment you enjoy. Devour!

How Do You Store Corn Fritters?

For best results store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container. They will last around 3 or 4 days. You can reheat them in the microwave, but they will be a little more mushy. I prefer to turn on the oven to 350 degrees F and add them to a baking sheet for 10 – 15 minutes. This way they are more crispy like when you first made them.
