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.
1/4 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
- 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).
- 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.
- Serve immediately with syrup.
