Corn nuggets

Corn nuggets are a delicious and easy-to-make snack or side dish. Here’s a simple recipe for preparing them:


  • 1 can (15 oz) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for some heat)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or regular milk if you don’t have buttermilk)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional, for extra cheesy nuggets)
  • Oil for frying (vegetable oil or canola oil works well)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the corn, cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using). Mix everything together until well combined.
  2. Add the buttermilk and melted butter to the corn mixture. If you want to make the nuggets cheesier, you can also add the shredded cheddar cheese at this stage. Stir the ingredients until you have a thick, sticky batter.
  3. Heat oil in a deep frying pan or a deep fryer to around 350°F (175°C).
  4. Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, drop small portions of the corn batter into the hot oil. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan; fry them in batches if needed.

  1. Fry the corn nuggets for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the oil and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  2. Repeat the frying process for the remaining batter until all the corn nuggets are cooked.
  3. Serve the corn nuggets while they are still hot and crispy. You can enjoy them on their own or with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ketchup, ranch dressing, or honey mustard.

Enjoy your homemade corn nuggets! They are perfect for parties, gatherings, or as a tasty snack any time of the day.
