Scott Farms Fritters

If you like fritters this is a great recipe for all kinds.  Our favorite vegetables are corn or okra in this mix

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs, beaten or (healthier real egg substitute)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 cup of flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal ( if you can find coarse stoneground meal it is even better)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp Scott Farms Spirited Southwest Rub Mix
  • 1 tsp Scott Farms Herbs Etc. Seasoning
  • 1 Lb of either okra (cut into pieces, fresh or frozen) or frozen corn (fresh corn of the cob is even better)
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion, chopped (can use some green onions chopped as an addition)
  • 1/2 bell pepper deseeded & chopped (optional red bell pepper to add color)
  • Vegetable oil for frying (we prefer canola or peanut oil)

Directions:

In a large mixng bowl, mix eggs & buttermilk. Add the flour, cornmeal, salt, Scott Farms Spirited Southwest, Scott Farms Herbs Etc, and mix well. Add either the corn or okra, then onion & bell pepper, stir until blended. Let set while preparing skillet & oven.

Set oven to warm and line baking sheet with paper towels. Heat a heavy skillet with about 1/2 inch of oil until hot. When the oil is  ready (gently) drop batter into oil by large spoonfuls to make larger fritters, smaller spoon  for smaller fritters. Fry until golden brown turning to do other side. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on the paper towel covered baking sheet. Set in oven to keep hot while you fry remaining fritters(remember only a warm oven not hot). You can place some of batter in the refrigerator if you are not feeding alot of people to do more the next day. A great final addition is a mixture of our Scott Farms South of Border Dip Mix prepared for a dipping sauce.
