Sweet Corn Fritters with Avocado and Crisp Bacon

During the weekends or public holidays, Aaron and I usually get more fancy with food. Apart from the usual poached egg or Weetbix, we'll cook up something for weekend breakfast. And it's Good Friday (and it's gonna be a long weekend since it's public holiday next Monday too!) today so I cooked this for our breakfast. We pampered ourselves to a rather healthy breakfast minus the bacon, haha! We'll be busy going out tomorrow and Monday too since it's a public holiday and it's Easter so meanwhile, have fun with this~

Crisp up 4 rashers of bacon in a nonstick pan with little EVOO until golden and crisp. Divide between 2 plates and keep warm in the oven (preheated at 50°C). With the remaining bacon fat rendered in the pan, pan-fried the sweetcorn fritter (recipe below) over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side. Place 2 fritters each onto serving plate. Place a generous handful of washed and dried baby spinach leaves on the side. Serve immediately with a large wedge of avocado and a slice of lemon alongside.

Thank you all! I know, the corn fritters paired so well with the avocado when eaten together and the saltish bacon compliment things so well. A dash of lemon and crispy baby spinach bundle it all up. It was a yummy Easter breakfast!
