Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Set aside.

  • Combine whole kernel corn, cream-style corn, onion, and egg in a medium bowl. Add to the dry mixture and mix well. It should be stiff; if not, add a little more cornmeal.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Drop batter by spoonfuls into the hot oil and fry in batches until golden on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer nuggets to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

Cook's Note:

If you don't use it all, you may partially fry the nuggets and freeze for later use or you may drop by spoonfuls onto a well greased cookie sheet and freeze until solid, then transfer to freezer bags. Do not thaw before frying after they've been frozen.
