This CHEESY CORN is so cheesy!

If you’re looking for a new way of serving corn, give this unique recipe for CHEESY CORN a try. The surprisingly sweet flavour of the corn blends so well with the tang of fresh lime juice and the richness of both butter and feta cheese.

Although the recipe is written using barbecued corn, you can also make it with frozen – unlike most recipes with corn, this one works with most varieties, so choose your favourite. Simply blanch about 6 cups of frozen corn in boiling water for 2 minutes, then, plunge it into an ice bath before straining and letting dry on paper towels. After that, continue the preparation as written.

There’s really not much to making CHEESY CORN, but here are a few useful tips:
