Corn is one of my favorite summer vegetables. And when it’s in season, I stock up just for these scrumptious fried goodies.

The corn, batter, and cheese has a delightful balance of sweet, savory, and creamy. Crispy and tender, these golden delights are epic.

There’s no need to fret, either. With store-bought mix, you can make these fabulous Bisquick corn fritters in no time!

What Are Corn Fritters?

Corn fritters are small, round, fried cakes made with… as you may have guessed, corn.

The corn kernels are combined with cheese and vegetables, coated in a thick batter, and then fried in a bit of oil or butter.

Imagine a corn-infused pancake, if you will. They are crisp on the outside, and tender on the inside.

The kernels give it a sweet and juicy crunch, while the melted cheese makes it incredibly creamy.

They are served either as an appetizer or side dish.

Tips & Tricks

Deep frying fritters can be a bit tricky. But don’t worry, these tips and tricks will help:

  • Fresh corn cutting trick. Here’s the easiest way to cut the kernels from the cob. Place the corn in a large bowl and cut from the top to bottom. The kernels will fall straight to the bowl avoiding any kernel or juice spillage.
  • Chill the batter. If you have time, chill the mixture in the fridge. This will give the flour in the baking mix time to absorb the liquids, helping it thicken.
  • Enhance the flavor. For more flavor, add herbs! I also like adding chopped jalapenos for a spicy twist. Spices like curry powder or garlic powder adds a ton of flavor, too. You can even stir in bell peppers, zucchini, or green onions.
  • Reduce the fat. Feeling guilty about all the butter and oil? Reduce the butter to 2 tablespoons and use cooking spray instead.
  • Make ’em thicker. Want an even thicker batter? Double up the Bisquick mix!
  • Serve with toppings. Top your fritters with sour cream and salsa for the ultimate experience. You can also top it with a spicy sauce, such as a jalapeno cilantro sauce. It enhances the sweetness and gives it a fiery kick!
  • Use a different cheese. You can’t go wrong with cheese, so any kind you want! Cheddar and pepper jack taste especially great with corn.

Can I Use Canned or Frozen Corn To Make Fritters?

Of course you can! Just because it isn’t summer doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these scrumptious treats.

Here’s a disclaimer, though: fresh is best.

Fresh corn will get you the best-tasting fritters because they are extra firm and juicy. And also – the corn milk.

Corn milk is that substance you get when you hack off the corn kernels from the cob. It’s super flavorful, which makes the fritters taste even better.

But, again, there’s no law against using canned or frozen corn. Here are a few reminders, though:

  • Canned corn: When using canned corn, drain the corn well. Then pat the kernels dry with paper towels. You don’t want any added liquid in the mixture, or the fritters will be soggy.
  • Frozen corn: Be sure to thaw it first. If you want to speed things up, microwave the corn in a bowl with hot water. Or soak the corn in water until it thaws. Then pat the kernels dry with paper towels.

How to Store Corn Fritters

Corn fritters are best when you make them. They lose their crunch and get soggy the longer they sit.

However, this doesn’t mean you can’t store leftover corn fritters! Just store and reheat according to these instructions:

To Store: Place the cooled fritters in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 2 days.

To Freeze: Stack the cooled fritters in a freezer bag with parchment paper in between. Freeze for up to 2 months. For more tips, check out my post on how to freeze corn.

To Reheat: Fry them in a pan with a little bit of oil or butter. Likewise, you can reheat them in the air fryer.

To Thaw: Place the corn fritters in the fridge overnight. Or let them sit on the counter for an hour.
