Ingredients

Fritters:
Spicy Buttermilk Dip:

Directions

For the Fritters: Heat a large pot or deep-fryer with the canola oil to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the baking mix, cornmeal, and sugar. Beat in the eggs and milk until well incorporated. Mix in the corn, thyme, paprika, bacon, melted butter, and salt and pepper.

Carefully drop the fritter batter in hot oil, 1 heaping tablespoon at a time. Fry in batches of 8 to 10 making sure not to overcrowd the pot. Fry until brown and crispy, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the fritters to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Transfer to a serving platter and serve with a side of Spicy Buttermilk Dip.

For the Dip: Add all of the dip ingredients to a serving bowl and mix together until well blended.
