Put together ears of corn and milk for a hearty entree

Print this recipe
Did you know that boring old boiled corn you're always making can get an instant upgrade? It doesn't even have to cost you a lot in time or effort. As you'll see in the recipe below, all you really have to do is add a little bit of butter and milk to the cooking water, and you'll be pulling out corn that's delicious in a way you never even dreamed it could be.
Although only a small amount of milk is added, you can totally taste the dairy. It's like a deliciously creamed corn with all the fun of eating corn on the cob. A dash of cayenne pepper makes things even more interesting. When you pull the ears of corn out of the pot, swoop them through the pinkish foam on top because that's where all the flavor is.
