Cheesy Corn on the Cob

July 21, 2009


In one of Kenya’s favorite books, Richard Scary’s What Do People Do All Day?, there is a family of pigs that eats about fifty ears of corn in one sitting. I think Kenya loves the book as much as he does because the pigs’ huge plate of eaten cobs looks very similar to Kenya’s own plate after I make my own family corn and he turns into a little piggy himself. Yes, he loves corn. Even more so when I roll his in a little cheese. It totally takes this summertime favorite up a notch.

It’s also super simple to do and really impressive and delicious, especially to kids. I served these with fish tacos recently and it was a total hit!
