Cheesy Corn made with canned corn, butter, mozzarella cheese, onions, and garlic. Made in under 20 minutes!
Two months ago I would’ve made this cheesy corn recipe with fresh corn but things have changed. I want to incorporate canned and frozen foods as much as possible in my recipes. This is a quick and easy recipe that requires just a handful of ingredients.
The best part about this is the sweet and salty combination. You get the sweetness from the corn and the saltiness from the cheese. It’s so good. You may add a pinch of sugar to the corn mixture if you’d like but the corn I used was sweet enough for my liking.
Step by Step
- Mix the canned corn kernels, onions, garlic, mayo, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
- Melt some butter in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add the corn mixture to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes. Cover with cheese and bake for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted.
- Don’t have fresh garlic or onions? Use granulated garlic and granulated onion.
- If you don’t have butter feel free to use olive oil or any type of oil you have on hand. If you don’t have any oil, cooking spray, or butter just use a nonstick skillet.
What Type Of Cheese Should I Use?
I highly recommend using mozzarella cheese if you want that nice pull and a salty top layer but feel free to use whatever kind you have on hand
Can I Use Frozen Corn?
Absolutely. You may use any corn you have on hand.
