honey butter drenched corn fritters that are fried to a crisp perfection ohsweetbasil.com

Have you ever had a hushpuppy? I’ve only had one. Literally, one. We were in South Carolina and there was one left at the salad bar. It was still hot and totally delicious but the family in front of me seriously took the entire pan. Who does that? Ugh, thanks for leaving me one! I watched with totally creepy eyes for the rest of dinner but they never got refilled. Dagnabit! And since I didn’t have enough to really try to make my own version I did the next best thing, I made honey butter fried corn fritters. Is that even a thing? Probably not but good golly they were yummy!

We had actually just made corn dogs, which did not go very well (turn that oil up folks or that stinking corn mixture floats right off) and then when I served the few good ones the girls informed me that they like plain hot dogs and not corn dogs. 🙁 Clearly my fail ruined them. I’m dying to try Corn Dog Commander just to help them fall in love but back to the fritters.

I had no desire to dip anymore corn dogs (have I mentioned that I actually love the things?!) just for the kids to whine so I did what any healthy parent would do, I fried the batter and rolled them in the world’s best honey butter. Yes, world’s best honey butter. And then we all shoveled them into our faces because fried corn and honey butter are heaven. And now you should back away from the computer before your drool ruins the keyboard.

Once the fritters have cooled, stack them in airtight containers, with baking parchment between the layers of fritters, and freeze for up to 1 month.

Reheat corn fritters for about five minutes in the toaster oven.

Or, you could also thaw them for about an hour on the counter and quickly reheat in a pan.
