Recipe Wednesday! Corny ideas for you...

This wonderfully EASY recipe is from a tearoom, where it was a customer FAVORITE! Try it at home with some FRESH corn off the cob!

(Made in the Microwave!!!)


2 cups water
2 cups diced peeled potatoes
1/2 cup sliced carrots
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (14.75 ounce) cans cream-style corn
1 cup cooked fresh-off-the-cob corn


Place water in a 2-qt. microwave-safe dish; cover and heat until boiling. Add potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, salt and pepper. Cook, uncovered, on high for 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender; set aside (do not drain).
Meanwhile, in a 3-qt. dish, microwave butter on high for 50-60 seconds or until melted. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Cook, uncovered, on high for 6-7 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 2 minutes. Add the cheese. Heat for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Stir in the corn and reserved vegetables. Cook on high for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.


TIP: Make these for breakfast with the corn from those leftover ears you boiled from last night's dinner!



3 cups oil for frying
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablepoons sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon shortening, melted
1 1/2 cups cooked corn off-the-cob (OR: 1 - 12. oz. can kernel corn, drained)


Heat oil in a heavy pot or deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Beat together egg, milk, and melted shortening; stir into flour mixture. Mix in the corn kernels.
Drop fritter batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil, and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels.
