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!

 

No-Churn Sweet Corn Ice Cream

  • Flaky sea salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream, cold

  2. In a different bowl, whip the heavy cream until firm peaks form. Fold 1 cup of whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture. Repeat process until both mixtures are well-combined.
  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

Elote or Mexican street corn is a cultural staple. A classic way to enjoy it is to eat the flavorful corn off the cob. Here’s a family-style take that will leave your family craving for more. You can even substitute the cheeses (cheddar for Monterey Jack and feta for the cotija).

  • Olive oil, for frying
  • 1 can Mega Prime Quality Whole Kernel Corn
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice, divided, plus wedges for serving
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon mayo
  • 1 package tortilla chips (about 9 oz)
  • 2 ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled cotija
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a skillet with olive oil over high heat, add Mega Prime Quality Whole Kernel Corn and season with salt and pepper. Toss and cook for about 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in jalapeño and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Season with salt and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir in sour cream, mayo, lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
