Courgette and corn fritters

Courgette and corn fritters Easy Food

Serves 4

6 eggs
2 x 198g tins of sweetcorn, drained
4 spring onions, finely chopped
100g courgette, grated, water squeezed out
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
30g Parmesan, grated
100g self-raising flour
80ml milk
Salt and black pepper
2 tbsp vegetable oil

To serve:
Mixed leaves

  1. Crack two eggs into a large bowl and beat well. Add the sweetcorn, spring onions, courgette, cayenne, Parmesan, flour, milk and some salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Working in batches to avoid crowding the pan, ladle in burger-sized portions of the batter and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until golden-brown on both sides; you should have enough to make eight fritters. Keep warm on a plate tented with foil.
  3. Fry or poach the remaining four eggs until cooked to your liking.
  4. Place two fritters on each serving plate and add a fried or poached egg, some salsa and a generous handful of mixed leaves.
