Original recipe yields 20 nuggets

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the creamed corn and drained whole kernel corn. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and coat with vegetable oil or cooking spray. Drop spoonfuls of the corn mixture onto the sheet, and freeze until firm, about 3 hours.
  2. Heat one inch of oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) in a large deep skillet, or fill a deep-fryer with oil as directed by the manufacturer.
  3. Mix together the cornmeal, flour, egg white, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Dip frozen corn nuggets in the batter, and quickly fry in hot oil until golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain.

Something's wrong or missing from this recipe. If following these directions, the batter turns into part paste and part powder. I tried adding more milk, but wonder if dipping the corn in egg/milk then in separate bowl of flour/cornmeal would work better. This was not as I envisioned it to be.

I don't know why this recipe got so many negative reviews. I made this tonight and it was delicious. I did make some slight modification to it. 2 TSP of milk I have to assume was a misprint. I added enough so the batter looked like waffle batter. I added one Tbs of sugar. This is important, I let the batter sit for 1/2 hour before I used it. If fried up perfectly. My whole family loved it.

Overall this was a pain to make, I had to rope my husband in to help out. The nuggets turned out fine as long as they didn't burst open/break open, if that did happen they got extremly crispy and unedible. I had to add more liquid to the batter to get it to the right consistancy also.
