Golden Fried Corn Patties

Linda Griffith


This is another Southern recipe that my mom used to fix when I was young. I remember that we used to pile in the car and go to the farmer's market on Saturday and she and dad would buy a couple of bushels of corn and we would spend the rest of the day shucking it. She would make corn cakes from some of that and they were so good....We didn't have a food processor, so I learned at an early age to cut the corn off the cob twice and then scrape it with a knife..This recipe is very similar. Hope you will enjoy

Directions Step-By-Step

In a food processor, combine 1-3/4 cups corn kernels, the eggs, milk, and butter; process 3 to 4 times, or just until corn is coarsely chopped.

Stir together flour, cornmeal, mozzarella cheese, chives, salt, and pepper; stir in remaining corn kernels and the chopped corn mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened.
