Corn Nuggets Recipe



– 1 (11 oz.) can creamed corn

– 1 (11 oz.) can whole kernel corn, drained

– 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

– Salt and pepper, to taste

– Oil, for frying



  1. Prepare the Corn Mixture:

   – Gradually stir in the yellow cornmeal until well incorporated.

   – Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to your taste.


  1. Shape the Nuggets:

   – Heat oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep skillet to 350°F (175°C).

   – Form small portions of the corn mixture into nugget shapes or small patties, using a spoon or your hands.


  1. Fry the Nuggets:

   – Gently place the corn nuggets into the hot oil. Fry them until they turn golden brown and develop a crispy exterior.
