Mega Prime Corn Fritters

These corn fritters are sweet and delicate – a great finger food for the kids and definitely a newer and fresher way to serve your canned corn or any vegetables.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups Mega Prime Quality Whole Kernel Corn
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Sliced scallions, for serving
  • Garlic mayo, for dipping

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, put Mega Prime Kernel Corn, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, pepper, eggs, and heavy cream together. Stir until batter is well-combined. 
  2. Pour in vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, scoop small mounds of the corn batter into the pan, spreading lightly into a flat circular shape. Cook each side for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  3. Transfer the fritters into a cooling rack and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with scallions and serve with garlic mayo for dipping. Enjoy!

  3. Pour the mixture into a chilled metal loaf pan, cover and freeze for 5 hours until thick, creamy and scoopable. Enjoy!

Mexican-Style Corn Nachos

  • 2 tablespoon lime juice, divided, plus wedges for serving

  • 2 ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled cotija
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

  2. In a small bowl, stir in sour cream, mayo, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
