Ingredients

Servings  10  Serving Size  1 fritter

  •  

    3 large ears of corn, husks and silk discarded, kernels cut off the cobs (or use 3 cups of frozen corn, thawed and drained)
  •  

    2 large eggs
  •  

    avocado (halved, pitted, coarsely mashed with a fork)
  •  

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  •  

    1/4 cup fat-free milk
  •  

    2 tablespoons chopped, fresh chives
  •  

    1 teaspoon baking powder
  •  

    1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  

    1/8 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
  •  

    1 1/2 teaspoons canola or corn oil and 1 1/2 teaspoons canola or corn oil, divided use
  •  

    Cooking spray

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the corn, eggs, avocado, flour, milk, chives, baking powder, salt, and pepper.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Lightly spray a 1/4-cup measuring cup with cooking spray. Using the measuring cup, scoop up the avocado mixture and mound it in the skillet. Fit as many fritters as you can without overcrowding the skillet (about 5). Gently press them down using a spatula that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Cook the fritters for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn over the fritters. Gently press them down with the spatula. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a large plate or platter lined with paper towels.
  4. In the same skillet, still over medium-high heat, heat the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, swirling to coat the bottom. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter. Reduce the heat if the fritters are cooking too fast and starting to burn. Serve warm.
