How many things can we fry? Fried Oreo. Fried Twinkie. Fried Coke?
When I heard the title of this dish I immediately added it to the long list of things people have tried to bathe in bubbling hot oil. But this is different. No breading. No oil. Pure delicious. Read on to see how these kernels crisped up.
I came across this recipe while watching the Food Network on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It caught my eye because it was simple, fast, and gave me that same comforting feeling that a warm blanket on a rainy day provides. Here's the recipe:
As seen on Semi-Homemade Cooking, with adaptations
4 tablespoons butter
1 (16-ounce) bag frozen corn
3 tablespoons white sugar or honey
1/3 cup heavy cream, half and half, or milk
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 4 tablespoons butter.
Add the corn and stir to coat with butter. Continue to cook 1 minute.
Add honey and cook for 2 minutes more. Add cream or milk. Continue to stir while cooking until cream is completely absorbed, about 5 minutes. Corn should be golden brown.
Fried Corn is a keeper! With the inclusion of honey or sugar in the recipe, it makes the corn extremely sweet. For less sweetness, you can cut down on the amount of honey or omit it all together.
Routine veggies? Not here. This dish will convince anyone to finish their vegetables. Enjoy!
