 The title of this post should probably be Baked Corn Bread Muffin Thingies That Probably Shouldn’t Be Called Fritters But I Don’t Know What Else To Call Them Thingamajiggers. Yeah, seriously I have no idea what to call them. They’re good, that’s all that matters. I made these to serve with my vegetarian quinoa chili. The original recipe had them cooked in a skillet, but I decided to do these in the oven instead. I think I’ll try them in a skillet a different day, when I’m in the mood for some crispy fritters. Because these corn thingies (most appropriate name I can think of) are more muffiny than crispy frittery – just an FYI. I can’t wait to make these again!

    These Baked Corn Fritters are easy and taste great. They are a perfect side for the Chicken Quinoa Chili. And since they are full of so much corn they have a really sweet taste. Great warm with a spread of butter.

  2. Does the frozen corn need to be thawed?
