NATIONAL CORN FRITTERS DAY
July 16 is National Corn Fritters Day! Corn fritters are tasty bites of fried or baked corn batter.
These bright crispy morsels make great additions to summer barbecues and backyard gatherings. The main ingredients include corn, meal, egg, milk, and butter. While they may have originated in the south, corn fritters can easily be changed up with peppers, onions or herbs to give them regional and seasonal flair.
When paired with other vegetables and a pan-fried fish filet, these versatile cakes can be added to a lightly toasted bun for a unique fish sandwich. Don’t look at this dish as just a side, but a functional part of a complete meal.
