These fritters are also a great summer side dish. Add some heat by tossing in a chopped jalapeno.
Ingredients

egg(s)

3 large, separated

corn

4 medium, kernels removed with a knife*

sweet red pepper(s)

1 medium, diced the size of corn kernels

uncooked scallion(s)

cup(s), diced

table salt

½ tsp, or more to taste

black pepper

¼ tsp, or more to taste

all-purpose flour

2 Tbsp

cooking spray

2 spray(s), butter-flavored

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not glossy; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg yolks. Add corn, red pepper, scallions, salt, black pepper and flour; thoroughly combine and then fold in egg whites.
  3. Coat skillet with cooking spray and warm over high heat; when skillet is hot, reduce heat to medium. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of batter onto skillet to make each fritter. (Do not press fritters down with your spatula since they are meant to be fluffy.) Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes; carefully flip and cook until lightly browned and cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove cooked fritters to a serving plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat until all batter is used and then serve immediately. Yields about 4 fritters per serving.
Notes
*You can use frozen corn in this recipe if you prefer. Just make sure it’s thawed.
