  1. 1 (14.75-ounce) can creamed corn
  2. 1 (15.25-ounce) can whole corn kernels, drained
  3. 1¼ cups all-purpose flour, divided
  4. 1½ teaspoons salt, divided
  5. 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  6. 1 cup cornmeal
  7. 1 tablespoon sugar
  8. ¼ teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)
  9. 1 cup whole milk
  10. 1 large egg
  11. Canola or peanut oil for frying
  12. Pepper jelly, such as Sweet Melissa’s Jalapeño Dippin' Sauce, optional
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together creamed corn, corn kernels, ¼ cup flour, and ½ teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Scoop mixture into small mounds, approximately 1 tablespoon each, onto prepared baking sheet. Freeze until firm, approximately 1 hour.
  3. Place cornmeal in a small bowl. In another small bowl, combine remaining 1 cup flour, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, remaining ½ teaspoon pepper, sugar, and red pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and egg.
  4. In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, pour oil to a depth of 3 inches, and heat over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350°.
  5. Dredge each frozen corn nugget first in flour mixture, then milk mixture, then cornmeal. Drop into hot oil, and fry until golden brown, approximately 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve with pepper jelly, if desired.

  1. I loved seeing this recipe. My mother used to make these, not deep fried, just fried like a pancake (but smaller). We would sprinkle them with powdered sugar. I’m 76 years old, and my mother has been gone 36 years, it was a treat to see this recipe. Thank you.
