This is a simple buttered corn recipe that’s been upgraded into something that’s just irresistible. It’s all thanks to the gooey melted mozzarella cheese that’s piled on top of the creamy and buttery corn. This would be perfect as is but we went a few steps further to make sure this is super flavorful. We didn’t just add mixed vegetables with the corn but we also added grated Parmesan cheese to the creamy mayo. Corn, butter, mixed veg, mayo, and two kinds of cheese make this even better.
Feel free to leave out the mixed vegetables and just use two cans of corn. You can also swap the Parmesan cheese for cheddar cheese or leave it out for a more classic corn cheese recipe. (We just highly recommended it because it tastes like this delicious grilled corn recipe.)
Serve it as is in the small cast iron pan or as part of your samyupsal dining experience at home. Here’s the recipe:
