corn cups

Last night, we had some friends over for Scrabble night and appetizers.  After we boiled the corn and sliced it off the cob, we set up a corn bar and served corn cups with different toppings: butter, lemon juice, shredded Monterey jack cheese, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper.  I think everyone enjoyed their flavorful butter-slathered corn!

Other things to put atop your corn:

Old Bay seasoning

Smoked paprika


Parmesan cheese

Pressed garlic or garlic salt

Lime juice


There are so many ways to enjoy your summer corn!  Here are just a few:

Corn as the Italians Would Eat It

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)

Japanese Corn

Grilled Coconut-Glazed Corn


Any other favorite corn toppings or recipes out there?
