Sweetcorn Fritters and Avocado Dip
This is a really easy brunch recipe - the avocado dip has received the seal of approval from a couple of guacamole haters! My mum used to make it for barbecues when we were kids and as someone who doesn’t do spice, I much prefer it to a traditional guacamole.
In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and season to taste. If you like spice, add some chilli flakes into the mix.
Add the flour. Beat in well.
Mix in the sweetcorn and chopped tomatoes/ spring onions.
Heat a little cooking oil in a frying pan over a medium high heat.
Add a generous tablespoon of the mix into the frying pan to form a fritter.
Cook for around 3 mins on each side (until they are golden brown).
Repeat with the rest of the mixture - you should have 8 fritters by the end.
Serve with the avocado dip - I prefer a really smooth texture so I use a blender, but it’s fine to just mash it all together with a fork for a more “rustic” version.
