Breakfast, lunch or dinner – these fabulous fritters are quick to make and delicious with a crisp green salad.


  1. Heat the grill and place the bacon on the grill rack, cook for 5-6 minutes until crispy. Transfer to kitchen paper and break or chop into small pieces.
  2. Trim the spring onions and chop finely. Drain the sweet corn.
  3. In a large bowl beat the egg with the milk, flour, chilli powder (if using), until smooth. Fold in the bacon, onions and drained sweetcorn.
  4. In the medium bowl, whisk the egg white until stiff then fold into the mixture.
  5. Heat the frying pan to medium-high heat, add the oil then drop 4 tablespoons of the mixture into the pan, leaving space between them to spread a little.
  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes until golden underneath, carefully turn them and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  7. Keep warm in a heated oven or cover with foil while cooking the rest of the fritters.


  • These fritters are great with ketchup but if serving as a light meal, accompany with a fresh tomato salsa and crisp green salad.
