Fire Roasted Corn Fritters is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Bread Bakers. We get together monthly to post breads of all types on a common theme. This month we are  sharing breads with spices. Glad you could join us!

Most of the breads usually presented in the group are baked,  but sometimes we do quick  breads on the griddle,  such and pancakes, or even fried breads such as doughnuts or fritters.

For my recipe I chose to make corn fritters using fire roasted grilled corn as a drop batter that also includes cumin and cayenne. Since our theme was breads with spices.

The fritters are similar to hush puppies  with a little extra southwest inspired bite. The corn was leftover charred corn on the cob which I cut off and fold it in. I love being able to repurpose extra food!

The fritters are served with ranch dressing as a dip. We also found that we liked them with a hot mustard dip as well as a cheese sauce.
