Corn Fritters...Like Hush Puppies Only Awesomer!

I love hush puppies.  I just don't like the fish that goes with them.  And for some reason I feel like there is an unwritten rule that says I can't make hush puppies unless I fry fish.  I know, I know it's free country and I can fry up whatever I want in my kitchen but I always feel like the Hush Puppy Police are out there somewhere, just waiting to pounce on me.  I came across this old recipe for corn fritters and it reminded me of hush puppies without the stigma.  The fritters are light, fluffy and slightly sweet.  A perfect summer side dish.  I served them with honey butter.  You know, just to take the edge off the already deliciousness.  And I can tell you one thing, Mr. Devilish Dish is mighty glad I found this recipe.  Because I walk around constantly saying, "I want hush puppies Daddy." just like Junior says to his father Sheriff Buford T. Justice in Smokey and The Bandit.  Now that I have corn fritters, I don't want hush puppies so much.  Ah...The little things that push that man over the edge!
Only 4 ingredients.
Combine milk and egg.
Add baking mix.  Stir until fairly smooth.
Add drained corn. 
Drop by teaspoonfuls into hot oil.

Drain on paper towels.
Serve with fried chicken tenders,
homemade pickles and
farm fresh cantaloupe. 
Or just serve them up with honey butter!
