Korean Corn Cheese #ImprovCookingChallenge

 This is a perfect way to use that end of the season corn.  It is delicious as an appetizer with corn chips and could also be served as a vegetable side.  However you decide to serve it up, your family and friends will love it.

Our host, Nichole of Cookaholic Wife invites us to join her each month in a cooking challenge.  She gives us two ingredients and sets us free to create the best dish we can. This month's ingredients were Cheese and Corn.

Let's see what everyone has cooked up for us today......

September Improv Cooking Challenge
I almost didn't make it to this party this month.  Life is still pretty crazy around here but quieting down a little now that Frank is in less pain and able to move around and do more for himself. 

We had family dinner on Saturday.  I threw steaks on the grill and our daughter picked up some corn on the cob to have with them.  

On Sunday our friends, Kim and Kurt, came over for dinner.  Kurt had caught a 23 lb. salmon in Lake Michigan and brought some of it over to cook up for us.  I wanted to serve up a snack with cocktails before dinner.  I had some leftover corn and remembered that this challenge was coming up quickly.

I did a quick google search for corn and cheese recipes and found this Korean Corn Cheese over at Spoon Fork Bacon.  It was quick, easy and I had all the ingredients on hand.  I put it in the oven just before our guests arrived.  By the time we poured cocktails it was ready to come out and be served.  It is absolutely deeeeeeelicious!!

I made some very slight adaptations.  First I used kernels from 3 ear of corn because I wanted to use up all the leftovers.  I used Miracle Whip instead of Mayo because that is my preference.  My scallions were tiny little things so I used 6 of them.

I will be making this again before corn season is over and beyond because the original recipe said that it tastes just as good if you use 1 1/3 c. frozen corn, thawed and drained or 1 (15 oz) can of corn, drained and with the sugar omitted.

You can also make this up and freeze it for use during the off season.  Just thaw and bring to room temperature before baking.

  1. My mouth is watering. TMI? I wish we still had gatherings cause this would be one I would make, of course, I could still make it for myself?

    1. Certainly. Or invite a friend or two for a socially distanced outdoor gathering before the snow starts.

  2. Ohhhh this looks addictive! Look at that gooey cheese!

  3. I love dishes that go into to oven, no need to look at the stove and keep checking. Love this cheese loaded dish.
