This corn could save the world; it’s that good. No seriously, I wouldn’t lie to you. After a Social Summer Dinner at The Endless Meal Supper Club last week the editor of The Daily Secret tweeted, “I have been talking, all day to anybody who will listen, about how good your parmesan corn was last night!:)”
I’ve baked the corn in foil packets in the oven and they were sweet and amazing. I’ve roasted them on high in the oven out of their foil packets and they were extra smokey and delicious. I’ve cooked them over a campfire and …. you get where this is going. They’re amazing every way you make them.
If you are throwing a dinner party cook the corn in foil packets in the oven. They’ll stay warm for at least a half hour after you take them out so you have some leeway while getting everything else organized.
