Bacon-Corn Fritters

Sometimes I eat fried things for Breakfast, and love every bite. Food like this is the #1 reason I work out – that way I feel less guilty. After spin last night with the extra hills and sprints she threw at us, I thought a treat was deserved this morning. These fried golden morsels are sweet and crunchy, and fit my morning craving perfectly.

My mom used to cook corn fritters for my brother and I during our weekends with her (we stayed with her every other weekend, but lived with our dad). Next to the raw sugar cookie dough cake she let me have for a birthday one year, this was the best thing she fed to me. And I got to pour syrup all over it too! MmMmm sweet & salty.

Love you, Mom. :-)


1 egg

1/4 cup milk

1 cup pancake mix (I used Krusteaz)

4 strips cooked bacon, crumbled

14.75 oz. can cream style corn

Cooking oil to depth of 1 inch


  1. In a medium bowl, blend egg and milk. Add pancake mix and bacon, stir until mixed. Fold in corn (to insure lightness, don’t overbeat).
  2. Heat oil to 350 degrees (or test by dropping a small bit of batter into the oil, it should sizzle immediately). Drop by spoonfuls and cook until golden, about 2 minutes then flip to cook the other side. Drain on paper towel-lined plate.
  3. Serve immediately with syrup.
