Corn Fritters made with Drum Rock will turn soup into a hearty meal that you won't soon forget. And even better, they are an exciting, tasty, and easy alternative to serving cornbread on Thanksgiving!

So, if you are looking for a way to change up your tired soup routine or have been wanting to add a little pizzaz to your lunch or dinner menu, then Drum Rock Corn Fritters are definitely the way to do it!




Corn Fritters





Ingredients:
  • 1- 8 oz. can of corn nibblets (or creamed corn, if desired)
  • 1 pound Drum Rock Fritter & Clam Cake Mix
  • 1 to 1-¼ cups water
  • Ice cream scoop
  • Oil for frying
  • Fryolator
  • Fry basket or slotted spoon


Directions:

1. Fill the fryolator with oil and turn to 375° F.

2. Add 1 pound of Drum Rock Fritter & Clam Cake Mix to a large bowl; add the can of corn and slowly mix in water, about one ½ cup at a time until desired consistency is reached.



3. Once oil is up to temp, use an ice cream scoop (we recommend using a #50 scoop) to carefully drop the batter into the oil, working in batches of 8 to 12 fritters at a time. It is best to fry in batches to avoid overloading the oil.


4. Fritters should take between 3 and 4 minutes to cook through. Once golden-brown and crispy, remove from the oil and cool slightly on a paper towel or plate before serving.

These little pillows of heaven tasted like a mix between a blueberry muffin and a blueberry doughnut bite - and how could any of that be wrong?!

They were delicious all on their own, but when we rolled them in powdered sugar they were pretty much irresistible. While we didn't get the chance to give it a try, we are sure that a little maple syrup or honey would be just as amazing, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream would be do the trick.

It all comes down to the fact that, if you're looking for something new to dazzle your customers or dinner guests with, a fresh batch of Drum Rock Blueberry Fritters is most certainly an unbeatable way to get everyone's attention. So give them a try today!!

Fried Whole-Belly Clams


As far as most fans are concerned, a heaping plate of hot and crispy fried clams is pretty darn hard to beat. This is a simple way to enjoy a seafood staple, and it does a fantastic job of showcasing all there is to love about this New England favorite - Fried Whole-Belly Clams.


Fried Whole-Belly Clams




Ingredients:
  • 1 pint of whole-belly frying clams
  • 4 cups of Drum Rock Fis-Chic
  • Oil for frying
  • Fryolator
  • Fry basket or slotted spoon


Directions:

If clams are frozen, make sure they are completely defrosted before cooking.

1. Fill the fryolator with oil and turn to 375° F.

2. Add 4 cups of Fis-Chic to a large bowl; place clams in the dry mix, making sure to coat each one thoroughly.



3. Once oil is up to temp, fry the clams in batches of 8-12 so as not to overload the fryer.
It should only take about 30 to 45 seconds for the clams to cook. (Do not overcook or else the bellies will burst!) When the bubbles slow and the clams float to the surface, they should be cooked to a perfect golden brown.

 

4. Remove to a paper plate to drain. Cool slightly before enjoying.





Legend has it that this classic was invented in a tiny clam shack in Massachusetts nearly a century ago, and this New England tradition is still a hit with seafood lovers everywhere.

When you fry up clams with Fis-Chic they are so perfectly delicious you don't have to add a thing, but if you want something extra then they are great with a little tarter sauce for zing or hot sauce for some heat. And it is so quick and easy, just about anyone can do it.

We're sure you've got a hankering just thinking about it, so don't wait any longer - grab some Drum Rock and get cooking!










Enjoy!!
