Fried Corn


This Fried Corn was a nice change from eating corn with just butter like we usually do. This is not sweet corn season and I didn’t have any frozen corn so I used corn from a can. I can hear everyone gasping as I typed that! But seriously, even using the canned corn, this was delicious and a nice change from how we usually eat corn. This recipe is another keeper!





In a small saucepan over medium high heat, melt the butter.



Add all the rest of the ingredients.



Stir to combine the ingredients.



Continue to heat, stirring frequently, until all of the liquid is absorbed.

      • Looks spectacular! The canned corn can be surprisingly good too! I tried it with frozen corn last week, but was missing a lot of your ingredients too, so that was probably it more than anything. Have to remember to get some milk tomorrow so I can try that homemade cappucino Sunday, it’s been on my mind quite a bit lol : )

      • When I worked at Dunkin Donuts we sold the cappuccinos and lattes with chocolate and caramel… good! So I bought the Smucker’s caramel ice cream topping and added that!

  1. We eat lots of canned corn, usually adding it to other things. I’ve never tried it fried on its a own, and must admit my mouth was absolutely watering reading this recipe.

    • Thanks Chris! Same here, always with butter or in soup, casseroles but never fried! It was such a nice change of taste! I can’t wait to see how it tastes with fresh and frozen corn!

  2. Mom used to take this one step further and fry up some corn fritters. They were such a pop item in New England BITD you’d see cartoons about using popcorn in the recipe for self-flipping fritters.

  3. I love this idea! Some months ago I bought several cans of corn because it was on sale and I couldn’t pass it up. This will be a terrific way to use up All. That. Corn.
