The kind folks at Fleischmann's sent me some of their new Simply Homemade Cornbread Baking Mix and a bunch of other goodies! I love it when that happens! They had one request, that I come up with a recipe using their cornbread mix, but the key was it had to done on the outside grill and go with grilled foods. Ok, I had to think about that one for a minute, but these "Fully Loaded Corn Fritters" is what I came up with and boy were they tasty! I actually cooked the whole meal on the grill and never even had to turn the oven on. It was great!
Here is what you will need:
1 (15 oz. box) Simply Homemade Cornbread Baking Mix
1/4 cup self rising flour
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 Tbs. butter, melted
1 cup corn kernels (fresh, canned or thawed frozen works)
1/4 cup real bacon bits or crisp cooked bacon crumbled
1/4 cup sliced green onions, including some of the green blades
1/4 cup Monterrey Jack Cheddar cheese blend
oil for frying
This is what the cornbread mix looks like in case you go looking for it!
Combine the first 5 ingredients until smooth. Add in the corn, bacon, green onions and cheese and just stir in until incorporated.
Heat the oil in your skillet until a little of the batter sizzles. Drop about two heaping tablespoons of batter for each fritter. Cook on one side until brown and then carefully turn them over and brown on the other side. Make sure you put enough oil in the pan or they can stick. I used the burner on my gas grill, but of course, you can do this on the stovetop also.
Take them and place them on a paper towel lined plate!
