Dick Clark’s Corn Fritters (from a Rachael Ray Magazine)
Now I have a mental picture of those two, chatting at a party, two completely different souls with no commonality in conversation. Huh.
The impression I have of Dick Clark goes waaaay back to when he hosted American Bandstand in Philadelphia. Must have been in the early 1960s. My big sister was able to go to Philly and dance on the show. She was so excited and of course my mom was uber excited for her. Linda on TV!! And Linda loved to dance. She left brimming with excitement, full of expectation and happiness. She returned so disappointed.
The kids`were able to dance and yes, Linda was on television, but when the cameras were off Dick Clark turned into an screaming ogre, yelling at the teenagers to line up and GET OFF THE DANCE FLOOR, and blah blah blah....
Yep, the image of Bandstand and Dick Clark...all of it, shattered Linda and she never watched it again. She was hugely disappointed and that remains with me to this day.
OK, on to yummy and non-yelling party food!!
I had neglected to add these to my Party Food post HERE.
They look like little pancakes, don't you think?
Ingredients you probably have handy right now!
One 15-ounce can creamed corn
4 large eggs
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
2 tablespoons sugar
Salt and pepper
½ cup flour
Unsalted butter, melted, for serving
These don't take very much time at all to toss together or cook.
In medium bowl, combine the creamed corn, eggs, frozen corn and sugar; season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle in the flour gradually, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray or use a tefloned pan. Drop tablespoons full of corn mixture to form small pancakes.
Cook until lightly browned on both sides. Serve with melted butter.

A nice addition to a party plate.....in my humble opinion.
Come to our place and enjoy a fritter....I promise Dick Clark won't be here.
