Corn Fritters with Bacon

The thing that I love the most about living where I am is that Mackay is pretty much always sunny. We can go for two to three months when you might get a sudden downpour of rain which makes you remember, "Hey I think that's the first time it has rained in ages". Except for a few months in the wet season, the weather is beautiful particularly in winter.

It's the cool crisp mornings and beautiful days that remind me of a New Zealand summer and send me back to days at the lake and eating BBQ for every night of December. Whilst the rest of you are finally defrosting after a cold winter, things are starting to warm up again here. And with the increasingly striking weather, comes the smell of BBQ. We are luckily enough to cook on ours all year round, it is the best way to feed the masses when they come over for some saturday afternoon drinks.

This is one of my favourite BBQ recipes. And it's not overly meaty like most BBQs tend to be. Frankly I think everything tastes better on the BBQ but you can cook it in a fry pan as well if you want to. So pull out the BBQ and welcome the impending Spring/Summer.
2 cups of frozen corn
4 spring onions
1 large red chilli
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup milk
2 eggs (whisked)
8 rashers of bacon (that’s 2 per person)
Salt and pepper to taste
Sweet Chilli Sauce

1. Heat your BBQ, I had one side at medium and the other side on high.

2. Finely chop the spring onions and chilli.

3. Add all the rest of the ingredients together and combine.

4. Cook your bacon on the high heat side of your BBQ and cook until crispy.

5. Place a spoonful (I used a serving spoon size) of the corn fritter mixture onto the medium side of the BBQ and flatten out the mixture so that it is in a thin layer. This means that the fritter will cook through before it starts to burn, I learnt that from the first round of fritters I made.

6. The fritter will start to get small bubbles coming through, once that happens, flip them over and cook for a further minute before checking.

7. Place a stack of fritters on a plate, top with two rashers of bacon and drizzle with sweet thai chilli sauce.
