1 large egg

½ cup whole milk

1 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning

1/3 cup buttermilk ranch dressing

2 green onions, thinly sliced


Attach deep fryer thermometer to side of large saucepan; add oil and heat over medium heat 10 minutes or until oil temperature reaches 325°. Insert skewers halfway into 1 end of each piece of corn.

In wide, shallow dish, whisk egg, milk, salt and pepper. In separate wide, shallow dish, whisk flour and Cajun seasoning.

In 4 batches, roll corn in egg mixture, then in flour mixture to coat, shaking off excess; carefully add to hot oil and cook 5 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Transfer corn to paper towel-lined rimmed baking pan; cool 5 minutes.
