Gord's had it in his head for a while to make corn fritters. Neither of us had had them before.
He found a healthy recipe for them on Weight Watchers and made them tonight.
I was expecting them to look like an apple fritter from Tim Hortons ...
But they didn't.
Here they are ... they looked like they were supposed to.
I'd put ribs in the crockpot with BBQ sauce this morning and let them cook all day. It was delicious supper!
Here's the recipe for the corn fritters:
Points Value: 2
Preparation Time: 12 min
Cooking Time: 24 min
Level of Difficulty: Moderate
2 large eggs, separated
4 medium corn on the cob, kernels removed with a knife (or you can use thawed frozen corn)
1 medium sweet red peppers, diced the size of corn kernels
1/3 cups scallions, diced
1/2 tsp table salt, or more to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper, or more to taste
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
2 sprays cooking spray, butter-flavoured
In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not glossy; set aside.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg yolks. Add corn, red pepper, scallions, salt, black pepper and flour; thoroughly combine and then fold in egg whites.
Coat skillet with cooking spray and warm over high heat; when skillet is hot, reduce heat to medium. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of batter onto skillet to make each fritter. (Do not press fritters down with your spatula since they are meant to be fluffy.) Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes; carefully flip and cook until lightly browned and cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove cooked fritters to a serving plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat until all batter is used and then serve immediately. Yields about 4 fritters per serving.
