Buttery Skillet Corn

Every summer rolls around and I can’t wait to get my hands on the tons of super cheap fresh corn that stocks the shelves of the produce aisle.

When I can get 3 ears of corn for only $1 you better bet I’ll be buying it in bulk all summer long!

Corn is one of my favorite summer veggies, but I don’t often enjoy it in the traditional corn on the cob way.

Don’t get me wrong, I love corn on the cob, but I usually don’t want to take the time to make it myself (and really it tastes best on the grill.)

I love how fresh corn straight from the cob is.

I love using it in tacos, scrambled in with my eggs, and (my favorite) – cooked in butter until slightly crispy in the skillet.

I love corn on the cob, but hate how it sticks in my teeth.

This buttery skillet corn has all of the flavor I love and is easier to prepare and to eat!

I use a knife to cut the corn straight off the cob and into the skillet.

We love eating this corn as a side with dishes like my Parmesan and White Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes for a delicious seasonal meal. Fresh parsley on top is my favorite way to finish this off!
