Prize-winning Green Onion Corn Fritters

This is a crowd-pleasing recipe that goes great with a meal or when served alone as an appetizer. It recently took first-place in the appetizer category in a local recipe contest. Various substitutions can be made according to taste, i.e., milk instead of buttermilk, fiesta-style corn (w/peppers) in place of regular corn, and sweet onion (such as Vidalia) if preferred to green onions.

Ingredients

1 c
buttermilk
1
egg
1-1/2 c
cornmeal
1 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
corn
1/4 c
green onions, chopped (green portion only)
1 c
oil

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk and egg until smooth. Add cornmeal, baking powder, salt corn and onions. Set aside for 10 minutes. Mixture will thicken.
2
Add oil to large (10") skillet and heat to medium-high. Test heat by adding a drop of batter. If it immediately bubbles, oil is at correct temperature. Drop batter by large tablespoons-full into oil, allowing space between fritters. Fry 3-4 minutes, turning once. Remove carefully from oil with tongs or slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
