Quickest sweetcorn and cheese dip

sweetcorn and cheese

When you have a great recipe you know you will be making it often. If you have an off the charts recipe, so simple, then you would make it your comfort, isn’t it? That is what I do with this steamed sweetcorn recipe.
Corn is what we always associated with an outing. That small cup of steamed sweetcorn with a touch of cheese was a favourite of my kids when they were small. I remember blowing on every single corn kernel and handing it over to them.

The transformation

That simple steamed corn with a topping of cheese underwent a transformation when we were travelling South easy Asia. The bubbling cheese with the comfort of sweet corn was an irresistible combination we rediscovered in Korean restaurants. Further, the southern hemisphere winters in Australia sealed the deal for this cheesy addiction. Now it is become that Friday classic which we love to hide the troubles of the week in. Join us as we bring out the bubbling cheese and corn with a side of crackers.

Over the campfire

When using on a camp, frozen corn may not be an option. If you can use canned ones, try this method. In a skillet add the drained corn kernels, mayo and cheese and place it on the campfire embers and let it bubble away. Once the cheese is melted it is ready to have. Scoop up with the chips and crackers and share.

On the barbeque grill

In a cast-iron skillet, add the drained corn with the cheese, mayo and black pepper. Add a touch of butter if you like it silky smooth. Cover with foil and set it to the side of the grill as you work through the other mains. Once the cheese starts bubbling gather up your friends and dig in with chips and crisps. Top some onto you burgers for that sizzling comfort.

I honestly thought I miss read it is Mac and cheese I told myself. Then I saw the pic again and said it is corn and cheese. Shows me I have stopped thinking out of the box. I love this idea and I am sure hubby will too! This definitely sounds like movie nights with wine. I better wait for some days before I do it or the girls will yell at us, ” you are not to have cheese pappa and you wine mamma”. Sounds yum.

I do enjoy my sweet corn with butter and spices but haven’t tried it with cheese. That’s a wonderful recipe Seema, takes care of cheese cravings, filling as a snack and delicious. Recipes over time change as per the family members’ taste.
