Corn Fritters and BLT Salad

N made this awesome dinner for us a few weeks ago, and I'm sorry it has taken so long for me to get it up! This is a two-for-one post.  N had recently watched an episode of "Chef at Home" with Michael Smith (this is a Food Network Canada show), and Chef Michael made corn fritters and a BLT salad.  Luckily for me, N makes dinner a few times a week, and he decided that the corn fritters and salad needed to be ours for dinner.  It was delicious!

Corn Fritters
From Michael Smith Chef at Home

3 ears fresh corn, kernels removed from cobs
3 eggs
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons cornmeal
Salt and pepper
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Whisk corn and eggs in a large bowl.  Add flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper and mix well.  Stir in green onion and cheddar.

Heat oil in a large skillet over a medium heat, then add batter by the spoonful and flatten to form a pancake.  Cook until golden, flip and cook other side.

BLT Salad
From Michael Smith Chef at Home

10 slices bacon, chopped
1 head iceberg lettuce, washed and roughly chopped
A few handfuls of mixed baby greens or baby spinach, washed
1 pint cherry tomatoes, washed
Half a baguette, cut into one-inch cubes
2 tablespoons of butter

2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Salt and pepper

Fry the bacon until is brown and crispy, pour off all the fat. Drain on paper towels.

Brown baguette on all sides in a frying pan with a bit of butter.

Put lettuce, greens and tomatoes into a large salad bowl. Add bacon bits and toasted baguette.

Place dressing ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until emulsified. Pour over salad and toss well.


  1. I will take a fritter and a large salad please! Love the salad... I forget to use bacon in salads -

  2. Looks good, Nigel! Great job on both. I love BLT and never thought about doing a salad. I will have to try this! Any excuse to buy bacon is a good one!
