Southern Potato and Corn Fritters with Jalapenos are one of my many childhood favorites that my mom used to make; warm and yummy made with homemade leftover mashed potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese, Vidalia onions, organic corn, and jalapeno peppers, deliciously pan-fried in a cast iron skillet to perfection in cottonseed oil.
