Avocado and Cheddar Corn Cakes

Avocado and Cheddar Corn Cakes
I certainly have been enjoying all of the fresh corn on the cob that is currently available and I could not help but think about using some corn in a breakfast dish like corn cakes! I was thinking about a little twist on regular corn with the addition of some of my favourite corn flavour combos including both avocados and cheddar cheese! Corn cakes are pretty simple, consisting of corn, an egg and enough flour that the mixture can be formed into patties which are then fried until lightly golden brown and crispy! These ones are of course have the addition of the cool and creamy avocado chunks and plenty on cheddar cheese along with some green onion, cilantro and lime! I could easily go with sweet or savoury toppings with these tasty avocado and cheddar corn cakes and this time I made a breakfast out of them with fried eggs, bacon, refried beans and fresh pico de gallo! Yum!
