One of Noah’s favorite foods right now is corn. When I ask him what he wants for lunch it’s always tacos, pizza or corn. He indeed is his father’s son!
Although we all like corn, it can get a little old after awhile so I am always looking for ways to change it up. We of course love Sweet Corn Cake, Corn Casserole and Smoked Corn but I was in need of a simple and quick weeknight side. When I came across this recipe I knew it would be a winner in our house. What’s better than fresh, buttery corn?
Brown Butter Skillet Corn
recipe from Barefeet in the Kitchen
3 tablespoons butter, room temperature
4 ears fresh corn, kernels removed from the cob
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1. In a large thick bottomed skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter. Let it cook until it foams and then a few moments past that it will turn a light brown color. Be careful not to let it overcook, as burnt butter, with light brown specks that will turn black, is not at all the same.
2. Add the corn to the skillet and stir to coat all the pieces. Sprinkle with sugar, salt and pepper and stir again. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until the corn is hot and still crisp. Enjoy!
