Do you like fritters? I love them and they are so many different ingredients that can be mixed as in these Zucchini Corn Fritters.Jump to Recipe
Fritters are so versatile because all you are doing is mixing some flour with egg and veggies. You can add other ingredients to round them out but it is not necessary. This recipe has 6 ingredients. Once the fritter is combined, it is dropped in a skillet with oil and cooked on both sides. That’s it. A few examples of some corn fritters that I have made include (and look how different they look):
What I find interesting about fritters is that they work as an appetizer and work as a side dish. How do you like to serve them? In this case, I made them as a side dish. It compliments most proteins so well. I like fritters because you get your vegetables and the fritter is crispy like a hashbrown. Hashbrowns are my favorite kind of potato – for any meal.
Mom’s, did you see that I got two veggies in this recipe? I snuck some zucchini in with the corn. The one thing you have to do when making these fritters and using a vegetable with a lot of water in it, like the zucchini, is to squeeze out as much of the liquid as you can. I used both oat flour and corn flour so I could get a really nice and crisp fritter. I also used a shallow fry – about a 1/4″ of oil

Zucchini Corn Fritters
Is a fritter an appetizer or a side dish. My Zucchini Corn Fritters were a side dish and they have crunch, texture and flavor.
- 1 Whole Zucchini Shredded and liquid squeezed out
- 1 Whole Corn cooked and kernels cut off
- 1 Whole Egg beaten
- 1/4 Cup Oat flour
- 3 Tbsp Corn flour
- 2 Tsp Salt
- 1 Tsp Black pepper
- 1/4 Cup Corn Oil
- 2 Ounces Mozzarella shredded
Begin by prepping the vegetables – shredding the zucchini and squeezing out the liquid. Heat the corn and cut off the kernels once soft. Next, add the spices and flour to the bowl, followed by the cheese and the egg. Mix well.
Grab a ball of the mixture and form into a patty. Heat the oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add the patties to the skillet but be sure to not overcrowd. Cook 3 – 4 minutes per side. You want a crisp exterior but do not go to far. Finish cooking all the patties
Serve and enjoy!
