This is super-good food- easy to make, yummy, and a total man-pleaser. While I made these, I listened to a great video of John Hodgman telling a funny story about aliens.

Stir it up: Whisk 3 eggs in a big bowl. Stir in a can of drained corn niblets,

3 tablespoons cornmeal, 3 tablespoons flour, 3 chopped green onions,

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar, and some Salt n Pepper. It’ll make a thick, lumpy batter.

Bling it up: Maybe add some extra stuff like hot sauce, or sugar, or crumbled bacon, or chopped jalapenos, or somehing else. Or maybe not- I didn’t.

Cook it up: Heat a teeny bit of butter in a nonstick pan. Drop in big spoonfuls of batter to make pancakes, and mush ’em down flat while they fry. When the corncake edges are golden, sprinkle the raw tops with a big pinch of cornmeal and a wee pinch of salt, then flip ’em and brown the other side.

Serve with a dab of butter, & a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.

OH MAN!

We ate this with a deli rotisserie chicken and some pan-fried beet greens with goat cheese.

Rating: Hell yeah.
