Corn Fritters with Avocado & Proscuitto

corn-fritters-web

 

Party time or a special snack, dress them up or down, corn fritters are always welcome in our home. I made these the other day for a school cocktail party and they were a hit.  The combination of the fritters, avocado and crispy proscuitto is delicious and you get canapes and a dip made at the same time.  Nobody needs to know how quick and easy they are to make!  If you wanted to use them without the fancy bits they are great for kids snacks or in the lunch box.  This recipe makes about 16 – 18 small fritters and 1 1/2 of avocado dip.  I put the proscuitto under the grill in the oven to cook while I’m making the fritters and/or dip, let it cool and then break up into bite sized bits to go on top.

Timesaver Tip: The fritters can be made ahead of time (up to a day) and stored in an airtight container in the fridge until you are ready to use them.  Can also be frozen.
