Better Homes and Gardens Corn and Bean Fritters with Tomatoes
This recipe has 9 ingredients, including the optional parsley or cilantro topping. The total prep and cook time is approximately 30 minutes. For whatever reason finding cherry tomatoes at my local grocery store is hit or miss, so I used grape tomatoes instead. I used fresh sweet corn, I prefer the taste when it's in season over the frozen variety. Finally, I chose not to use the optional parsley and cilantro topping, since my kids can be finicky about 'green' toppings. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.
These fritter are very high in protein, 14 grams per serving. The taste of the fresh corn was delicious and the fritters turned out great. The one suggestion I have is to make smaller fritters. The size of fritters the magazine suggests, is awkward to flip and parts of the fritter didn't crisp up completely. These problems would easily be changed by making the fritters about half of the size that the recipe states. I appreciated that this recipe re-heats well, and made a perfect breakfast food for my oldest before kindergarten.
