Ham and corn fritters

We're still trying to use up the last of our Christmas ham in this dear little house, so I thought I'd try something a little different. I did attempt to make these yesterday, but after making the batter I realised that I didn't have any corn after all. Ham fritters are nowhere near as good as the real deal!

Leg ham fresh of the bone, yum!
With some fresh from the garden green beans and cherry tomatoes we had quite a good dinner tonight. Here are the recipes for the three dishes I prepared tonight; ham and corn fritters, blanched green beans, and roast cherry tomatoes.

Ham and corn fritters
 INGREDIENTS
1.5 cups chopped ham
1/2 a red capsicum, diced
420gm can of corn kernels, drained and rinsed
3 spring onions, finely sliced
1 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp caster sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
Oil for frying

METHOD
Sift the flour, and baking powder into a bowl with the sugar. Crack the eggs and pour the milk into a bowl and whisk until smooth, add it to the flour and mix until well combined. Add your ham, capsicum, corn and spring onions to the batter and combine. Spoon about a tablespoon of batter for each fritter into your hot frying pan, fry for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they are golden brown. Unless you have a giant pan you will need to do this in batches.

Blanched beans
INGREDIENTS
Green beans, top and tailed
Water
Salt and pepper to taste

METHOD
Bring water to the boil in a saucepan. Add the beans. Wait for the water to come back to the boil for a minute, you still want your beans to be crunchy. Drain well and add salt and pepper to taste. Easiest beans in town and they don't lose their 'beaniness'.

Roast cherry tomatoes
INGREDIENTS
Cherry tomatoes and/or baby tomatoes on the truss, as pictured
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

METHOD
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Put your tomatoes an a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle some salt and pepper over the top and whack it in the oven. Cook until the skin starts splitting, about 5-10 minutes depending on the size of the tomatoes.

So there you have it! It's a great combo, the crunchiness of the beans complements the fritters and tomatoes perfectly. An optional extra is to put sour cream or cream cheese on top of the fritters for serving. Michael says that this one stays on the 'keeper's list' and I should make it again. Maybe next time we have giant amounts of ham?
