I got this simple and easy recipe from Denise Johnson, a member of our Sunday school class when we were members at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Cedar Hill, Texas. I used to ask Denise to bring her delicious corn recipe to potlucks frequently and she always obliged us. Denise gave me this recipe reluctantly saying the recipe was “embarrassingly easy.” And she’s right. It is SO E-A-S-Y!!! It’s also SO D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!
If you’re looking for a great tasting corn recipe with only a handful of ingredients that you can have ready to serve in less than 10 minutes, this recipe is for you! It’s gluten free, low calorie, healthy, and economical, too. You can easily make this a vegan recipe by substituting coconut oil for the butter in the recipe. Same fantastic results.
When I initially posted this recipe in January 2013, it was before I purchased my Canon camera so I was using an inferior iPhone camera to do the job. While the pictures were okay, the lighting was deplorable, so I decided to retake the pictures when I recently remade the recipe (April 2015). I took a meal to a young couple in our church after the birth of their first child. This recipe is still embarrassingly easy but as tasty as if you’ve spent much longer in the kitchen. Hope you enjoy it.
