The only thing better than an ordinary corn fritter is a cheesy corn fritter with a fresh tomato and avocado salsa! This is one of my favourite recipes to make at home. Sometimes we have these fritters for a lazy Sunday brunch, but more often than not, it’s for a quick and easy midweek dinner. I’m a BIG fan of breakfast for dinner!

This recipe will make you 6 large fritters, but you might like to make them a bit smaller if you’re feeding little ones. Or, another great idea is to make these into little mini fritter bites which you can serve as an appetiser at a BBQ or party. Deliciously cute and easy… gotta love that!

Okie dokie, so to make these fabulous little things, you need to start off by whipping up an easy salsa. Pop your yummy chopped avo and tomato into a small bowl. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, a teensy bit of olive oil, some chopped parsley (optional) and then season with salt and pepper. Set your salsa aside while you make the fritters.

Now this is really, really easy. You pretty much add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Then drop 2-3 tablespoons of the fritter mixture into a preheated frying pan. I like to cook the fritters in a couple of batches, so make sure you have your oven on low to keep the fritters warm, while you cook the remaining batches.

    Yep, the cheesiness most definitely is calling me 😛 These look so fabulous Lucy, and I love that they could be served for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or perhaps all three in the one day?! I wouldn’t complain!). Yum!

    Brinner (breakfast for dinner) is totally a thing, especially if these fritters are involved. They look fantastic!

  3. Lauren @ Create Bake Make says:

    Corn Fritters are a big favourite in our house, the boys just love them and have been known to even eat leftovers for breakfast! I like to make an extra big batch and then pop individual serves into the freezer for those days when I can’t be bothered cooking!

    This made me smile – I always order fritters for brunch when I see them on the menu and it’s been ages since I made them at home. Must get onto that asap.
