Sweetcorn and feta fritters – A quick and easy meal that all the family will love!
We all have a selection of go-to meals; ones that we cook frequently, pretty much know the recipe off by heart and that never disappoint. These sweetcorn and feta fritters are one of the meals that I cook most regularly. They are quick and easy to make, easily adaptable to fit whatever you happen to have in the fridge or freezer, and most importantly, delicious!
I always have a bag of sweetcorn in the freezer as it is so useful for quick meals, so I use defrosted frozen corn in my fritters; you can use drained canned corn, or even cooked fresh corn if you prefer though. I blend some of the corn to make the batter with so that you get plenty of sweetcorn flavour in every bite as well as whole corn kernels for texture; the taste of these fritters is phenomenal!
These sweetcorn and feta fritters are great for both adults and children alike; if you are making them for kids though I recommend leaving out the chilli, they will still be delicious and are a great way to get kids to eat their veg!
I like to serve them with sliced avocado and fried eggs to make more of a full meal, they are really good with refried beans too, or with a green salad. Alternatively just serve them with some sweet chilli sauce for dipping; however you want to eat them they are delicious!
A few ideas for ways to vary these fritters are:
- Change the type of cheese you use; I used feta here but often make them using grated mature cheddar instead.
- Use different herbs and spices; try adding finely chopped basil or chives or swap the spices for cajun seasoning or curry powder.
- Add in some finely diced cooked veggies – broccoli, carrot, sweet potato and courgette would all work well.
