Corn Nuggets

We’ve been in Bahrain for about 21 months, and my craving for my favorite chicken place, Chicken Express, is starting to get out of control. I really miss the corn nuggets that they have on the menu.  Corn nuggets are hushpuppy sized nuggets of deep fried sweet corn.

I dug around on  the internet and found this recipe.  It’s not quite the same, but it’s pretty darn close…

Here’s what you do:

In a medium bowl, sift 2 cups of flour with 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 cup of sugar.

In a large bowl, mix 1/4 cup of melted butter with 1 cup of milk, and 2 eggs that have been slightly beaten.

Now, fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until they’re mixed together.  Then, add in 1 1/2 cups of corn.  I used frozen corn that was defrosted, but I’m sure canned corn that’s been drained would work well too.

After everything is mixed into a batter, I turned it over to Keith.

He  dropped the batter by tablespoons into the deep fryer that he had preheated to 350*F.  He fried the little nuggets of goodness until they were golden brown.   After they fried, he put them on a cookie rack covered with paper towels to drain the grease.

The batter made quite a few nuggets, so I think we’ll be snacking on them for the rest of the night.
