Guys, the warm weather is upon us. Here in the Midwest, the birds are singing, the grass is growing, and we’re uncovering the patio set –always my favorite part!

Gorgeous, right? April and May are actually your best months for picking delicious, sweet corn. Who knew?!
This corn tasted as fresh as it looks. Crispy off the cob, and subtly sweet in the corn fritters I cooked up. Corn fritters are a classic side dish that often steals the show. They’re that good!
Simply heat up a skillet, and combine Sunshine Sweet Corn (cut right off the cob), cornmeal, some Greek yogurt, and few eggs (separated).
Add some olive oil to the hot skillet. toss in some chopped scallions to the fritter mix, and add tablespoon-size dollops to the skillet.
That’s it. The skillet does the work from here. When they turn golden brown on side, flip, and cook until both sides are good to go.
Just like that!
Top with plenty of scallions and some sour cream or even a dijon mustard/mayo combination. Delish!
I served these with a main dish of chicken and a side salad when we had some neighbors over for dinner, and it was a hit. The fritters are so flavorful, and you can really taste the fresh corn.
I love the combo of the crispy, fried outside and the sweet corn inside of the fritter. It’s way more than just a side dish. Perfect for entertaining or a casual summer meal. And don’t skip the dipping sauce!
I’ll definitely be adding more corn to favorite recipes this spring and summer. Such a simple way to incorporate fresh veggies into our meals. Plus the kids love it!
For this recipe, found HERE, I used Sunshine Sweet Corn cut off the cob. It’s non-GMO, extra tender, and regulated for quality control, which makes it an easy choice for my family. The cream of the crop for my favorite dishes!
