Fluffy corn fritter, packed with the goodness of crunchy, sweet corn. They come together quickly, ready for your choice of topping.
Corn fritters are one of my favourite homemade breakfast recipes because they're healthy and filling. I tend to make them when I'm trying to eat a lean and healthy diet. To keep these healthy I use a non-stick pan and either no oil or just a tiny drop. You can also cook them in a sandwich press with no oil at all.
I am always disappointed when I order corn fritters at a cafe because they have been deep-fried and are greasy and gross!
In the past, I have made this recipe by hand, so if you don't have a Thermomix, don't worry, I will put the instructions below.
How Thermomix makes a Corn Fritter Easy
I'm a lazy cook so I've modified the corn fritter recipe so it can be made in the Thermomix. The changes are minor but they are labour saving.
- Thermomix does the chopping of the onion! WIN, no more tears!
- The corn batter is combined in the Thermomix quickly and efficiently.
- The TM jug makes it easy to pour the batter straight from the jug to the frying pan. No mess!
Serving Your Corn Fritter
There are so many different ways to serve your fritters. Take a look below;
Breakfast or Brunch Ideas
- On the side of the plate with bacon and eggs instead of toast.
- As part of a vegetarian stack. Layer 2-3 fritters with avocado, tomato relish and sour cream.
- A lean, healthy stack 2 fritters topped with feta or homemade ricotta, roasted capsium and rocket drizzled with balsamic dressing.
If you're not a breakfast or brunch person these are equally delicious for a packed lunch.
- served with a big salad and dressing.
- since my daughter became a vegetarian I have started making her a "corn fritter burger" for lunch. The burger consists of a corn fritter patty, then I add tomato, lettuce and beetroot to a burger bun with some tomato relish, avocado and sour cream.
If you're still looking for a delicious breakfast idea why not try my fluffy Thermomix pancakes. These American style pancakes a super easy and perfect for a lazy breakfast. If you are too rushed for a cook breakfast chia puddings made the night before are the perfect breakfast on the go. I also have a blue mermaid chia pudding which is super cute.
