Add the liquid from the sweetcorn and mix to a smooth paste, then fold in the sweetcorn.

Whisk the egg white until stiff and fold into the batter.

Heat the oil in the frying pan and drop spoonfuls of the mixture, browning on one side, then carefully turn over to brown the other side.

Fry or grill the bacon and serve immediately, with the fritters.
