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.

How to Make Prize-winning Green Onion Corn Fritters

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.
