Corned Beef Fritters Appetizer

Corned Beef Fritters Appetizer

You must be thinking anotherfoodieblogger has lost her mind. Corned Beef Fritters??? Please let me explain. I am taking part in an online competition called “Diced!” at this blog here: Rantings of an Amateur Chef. You are given three specific ingredients that must be featured in the recipe, and for the first round it had to be an appetizer, soup or salad. The ingredients were corned beef, canned corn, and corn flakes cereal.

I couldn’t make up my mind between two concoctions for the contest, so decided to make both of them and send in the one that I liked best. This is the one that didn’t make the cut. Now wait a minute there! It is not bad tasting or anything, but I liked the other one better, and truth be told, my daughter said she liked this one better. However she just ate hers plain, and mine had sauerkraut and mustard with it. I thought the sauteing the sauerkraut mixed with the red cabbage would add a nice bit of color to the presentation, but it really did overpower the taste of the corned beef fritters, which was the main ingredient. By the way, I bought deli-sliced corned beef, but you could also use leftover corned beef if you have cooked some yourself.  I also think I could have added more corned beef. Since I still had another recipe to make, I didn’t bother trying to make them again with the changes.

If adding corned beef to fritters freaks you out, simply omit it and then you’ll have your basic Texas-style fritters! You might want to add a little salt or other seasoning, too, as the corned beef adds the salty flavoring.

When my other recipe is featured on the competition blog, I’ll share the post here with you. And then I want you to go over there and vote for it! Stay tuned — the competition deadline is November 28, so it will likely be early December before you see it.

Corned Beef Fritters

1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup crushed corn flakes
1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 cup corned beef, minced in a food processor
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1 small egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Add the dry ingredients to a bowl, and mix well. Then add the rest of the ingredients except the oil and stir to combine well. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Measure out 1/4 cup of the mixture then dump upside down into the hot oil. Repeat until gone. I ended up with three. I had added a fourth smaller one to the pan, but I tried to flip that one over too soon and it made a mess, so I scooped it out and just finished cooking the three. Fry the fritters for several minutes until browned on the bottom and fairly set. Flip over, then cook for several minutes more until browned and cooked through. Turn down the heat if necessary. Remove and drain on a paper towel. Serve with a sauce of your choice.

    This concoction has nearly everything I love to taste. (chocolate is the one other thing and I think we’re both glad to leave that out!)
