Can You Eat Sweet Corn Fritters Cold

While I prefer the crisp texture of fresh, you can eat them cold straight from the fridge! They are a treat either way. 

Of course, corn fritters will taste best fresh, as they will maintain the crispy texture from the air fryer. 

But if you have leftovers and want to store them, the fridge is a must. So eating cold instead of reheating is totally ok.

Can You Freeze 

This is up to you. The best texture will be freshly air fried. But, you can freeze. Simply cook as directed and then set fritters on a cooling rack. 

Allow the fritters to cool down and then you can transfer to a container. These fritters can be froze for up to 2-3 months. 

Thaw in the fridge the night before you plan to eat them so they can thaw. Then reheat in the microwave, air fryer or even oven. Or opt to eat cold.

Fresh Corn or Canned Corn

You are welcome to use fresh corn off the cob, or reach for canned corn that you drain liquid off of. Now if you do fresh corn, make sure to clean away the silks before you slice. 

Fresh corn will of course be best but if corn isn’t in season don’t push away the canned corn. It will still taste good!

Can I Double This Recipe

Of course you can double the recipe. The biggest thing is leaving space in between each fritter so they fully cook on every area. 

Then all you need to do is batch cook your fritters. You can place cooked fritters on a baking sheet in the oven at 200 degrees to keep warm. 

Don’t stack the fritters or it will make them soggy. Layout in a single layer as you wait for the rest to cook.

  • You could use fiesta-style corn instead of regular if you want some extra flavor and color. 
  • Try out a variety of cheeses like Pepper Jack, Mozzarella, or even provolone.

  2. O my–not my mother’s corn fritters, that’s for sure–Back in the 30’s and 40’s–no jalapenos obviously–and no cheese or bacon. And they were so delicious. Don’t need any of that!!!Unfortunately we didn’t have air fryers either, so will try her recipe in it. Thank you for the temps and time.

  3. These were so delicious! I didn’t have jalapeño or bacon, but they were devoured anyway. Thanks for a super air-fryer recipe!

  4. The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons each of butter and oil in the ingredients list, but the instructions never mention them?
