  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups corn seeds
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Cotija cheese, grated
  • 1 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (panko)
  • Oil in spray


  • 1
    Melt the butter in a medium-sized pan over medium heat. Add the flour and mix until combined; cook for 1-2 minutes. Add milk and constantly mix to avoid forming lumps. Continue cooking until the mixture thickens. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the corn kernels; mix until they combine. Remove from the heat and add the eggs and cheese; continue mixing for 2 minutes. The residual heat will cook the egg. Let it cool down and then place in the fridge for 1-2 hours until it is completely cold and compact.

  • 4
    Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the bites are golden.

    Garnish with more Cotija cheese and minced cilantro, if you want. Serve immediately.

More About This Recipe

  • When summertime arrives, I enjoy preparing corn anyway possible and one of my favorite ways to prepare it is in corn bites. Making them is very easy. The only part that takes time is waiting for the mixture to get cold enough to be able to form the bites. I usually prepare the mixture the day before and put it in the fridge overnight. Doing this saves me time because the only thing I have to do next is place them in the oven. Serve with cream, Cotija cheese (or fresh cheese) to make this plate a perfect side-dish for any plate.
