Corn With Butter And Cheese Recipe

Butter and cheese make freshly cooked corn extra delicious in this simple cooking recipes. This makes a healthy snack and can also be served as a side dish to grilled meats, ribs, roasts, or fish. Make this for weekend barbecue parties, picnics, or summer get-togethers. The sweet and crunchy corn is made creamy with butter and all the more tasty with cheese. You can season the corn with salt but if your cheese is salty enough then you don’t have to add anymore salt. You can spice up the corn with freshly ground pepper or add some cayenne or red chili powder for a little kick.

Corn with Butter and Cheese Recipe

When buying fresh corn, make sure you buy it on the cob. The natural sugars in corn start converting to starch immediately after it is harvested so it is best to cook corn on the day it is picked and bought. When the sugars convert into starch, the corn becomes mealy and tough with diminished flavor. Corn that has been sitting out in the sun all day is more likely to be starchy rather than sweet.

5 ears corn, off the cob
100gms grated American cheese
4 tablespoons melted butter
Seasonings to taste

1. In a pot, boil the corn for about 20 minutes.
2. Once corn becomes tender drain and set aside.
3. Put butter and corn in a saucepan and let it cook for a couple of minutes.
4. Add the grated cheese and season with salt.
5. Place in the serving tray and serve.
