  • 1 15oz can corn, drained or 1 1/2 Cups fresh corn
  • 2 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 3/4 Cup corn meal
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/4 Cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • extra virgin olive oil for frying


  • Mix the corn, bacon, corn meal, eggs, cheese, salt, and pepper together in a medium bowl.
  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a medium skillet. Scoop out about 1/4 Cup of the corn mixture and pack into a tight ball. Flatten and place in the hot oil. If the cakes are not sticking together, gradually add more corn meal.
  • Cook 2-3 minutes until the bottom is golden brown, then carefully flip and repeat on the opposite side.
  • Serve. See recipe notes below for two dip options!

While these corn cakes are delicious on their own, they also taste great with a little something extra too!  You may want to try Roasted Garlic Aioli or the Creamy Cilantro Lime Sauce that is part of the recipe for Festive Chicken Tostadas!
