Chargrills: Corn Frittazzzzz

Chargrills: Corn Frittazzzzz

The last three recipes have had heaps of ingredients, so here's one with just five must-add ingredients. It's corn.


In saying that, maize well load ‘em up with sour cream and/or sweet chilli if you've got any. Corn’t go wrong with a few greens on the side. Carrots and broc are relatively affordable right now so boil or roast some of them to keep the body happy.


Could be an all good lunch meal for a couple of days as well. Makes 3 (ish) each for $5. Double the recipe if you want to end up shitting straight kernels.


Must add:

  • 2 cans creamed corn
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder


Should add:

Ham or bacon, cut finely

1 1/2 tsp curry powder


Options to serve with:

Sour cream


Sweet chilli


Greek yoghurt



In a large bowl, mix together the corn, diced onion, and eggs.

Add the flour and the baking powder and combine.

Drizzle oil into the pan on medium heat. Drop spoonfuls of mixture onto the pan. Cook for a minute or two each side. Flip. Cook until golden and cooked through.


That's the simplest form of the recipe. Adding curry powder makes them way tastier. Ham is a cheaper alternative to bacon to get a salty twang in there.


Ideally, you want to load them up with sour cream, sweet chilli and cheese, but they could also pair nicely with a fresh salsa for some greens. Don't forget ya salt ‘n pepper to clog your arteries.
