Whether you are using canned corn, fresh corn, or frozen corn, these are some of the best summer corn recipes you’ll want to try.
We enjoy corn multiple times throughout the week, especially during the summer.
Our favorite is probably corn on the cob slabbed in butter. It is a must when we have company over or when we decide to enjoy a day outside grilling.
One of the reasons that we eat corn so often is because of my daughter. She will eat corn with any meal or by itself. She doesn’t care! So, I always have it stocked in the pantry with the rest of our pantry meal foods.
On a side note… A few years ago I met someone from Pennsylvania. She became a good friend of mine and we made a plan to get together for tacos one night with the kids.
So here I am making tacos and she brings over corn and tater tots. I must have looked at her in confusion because she started explaining to me that she has never had tacos without having a side of corn and tater tots to go with them.
She went on to say that this is how they do it in Pennsylvania and I had no idea. To me, it is such a weird combination but the kids loved it.
Now, every time I think of corn or am making it as a side dish, I always think about that!
