This past couple of weeks I’ve been trying some of other bloggers recipes, primarily from my Top Ten Tuesday lists; it’s fun! A while back, Chaya from My Sweet and Savory made some Corn Pancakes and they were the inspiration for this recipe. Definitely get over to Chaya’s blog and check out her recipe too.
I’ve needed comfort food lately; things that are easy to whip up that taste good. I haven’t had much of an appetite either (stress does that to me) and so I have to really make sure it tastes good to trick myself into eating :P
Kickin’ Corn Patties
2 cups of frozen corn
½ small sweet white onion
1 tbsp Briggs Amino Acids
¼ tsp xanthan gum
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp Bucks Seasoning*
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp dried sweet basil leaves
Pinch cayenne pepper
¼ cup of white rice flour
Oil for frying
I have a neat little thing called a salsa express. It’s sort of like a food processor, but it leaves things a lot coarser; plus its a manual crank. (Perfect for extra frustrations that may need to be expelled! :)) This is what I used for these corn patties. I’m not entirely sure how a food processor would compare. If you have one with a lot of options on it, I would recommend using the lowest setting and it should do the trick. Or I bet these would be just as good if the ‘batter’ was more finely combined.
Add the corn and mix for a few minutes (I used the corn right out of the freezer, it worked good that way!) Then with each ingredient following, I added it, mixed it for a few turns (5 to 10 seconds). I did add the seasoning all together at once, which seemed to work great. I mixed it for about 30 seconds at the end too after all the ingredients were there.
Then I added about 1 tablespoon of canola oil to a frying pan on medium/high heat. Each patty took about 6 minutes to fry up. The first side I left for 4 minutes and then flipped it over for two minutes. Let them cool before you put them in the fridge, but if you don’t plan on saving some for later, you can eat them up right away!
I’ve been eating this all week. Some I froze and some I only put in the fridge. They hold together well, so they do well with reheating. They’d make the perfect side dish I’m sure, but I’ve just been eating them with a small serving of plain quinoa and that’s enough for me!
*Bucks seasoning is this stuff my mom buys for me from upstate NY; the land of hunting. So yes, buck does refer to a deer. I don’t typically eat venison myself, but this seasoning is pretty tasty! I would recommend using a grill blend or one of your favorite seasoning blends in place of this for the recipe. Or you could omit it too, there are lots of other tasty flavors to be had in these patties!
