Cheddar, Sweetcorn & Ham Fritters make for an easy brunch or lunch! This budget-friendly recipe really is quick and easy, plus all kinds of tasty. Best served with tzatziki.


  • Milk – 3/4 cup
  • Lebanese cucumbers, shaved into ribbons – 2
  • Sweetcorn, husks and silks removed – 2 cobs
  • Parsley leaves, plus extra to garnish – 1/4 cup
  • Ham, chopped – 50 g
  • Smoked paprika – 2 tsp
  • Extra virgin olive oil spray – 5 ml
  • Light Greek-style yoghurt – 1/2 cup
  • Cheddar, coarsely grated – 90 g
  • Wholemeal flour – 1 cup
  • Free range eggs – 3


  1. Combine flour and paprika in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and milk, then gradually whisk into flour mixture until smooth.
  2. Slice kernels from the sweetcorn and stir into batter along with cheese, ham and parsley. Season to your taste.
  3. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with oil. Using 1/4 cup batter for each fritter, add to the pan, in batches, and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden.
  4. Transfer to a tray lined with paper towel, loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter to make a total of 12 fritters.
  5. Serve the fritters with cucumber, extra parsley and yoghurt.
