Quick Frozen Corn

Quick Frozen Corn

Sometimes, you have a lot of prep time, an abundance of fresh veggies, and the drive to make something truly magnificent. Most of the time, not so much! And the good news is that in those times you can still make something tasty that people will want to eat without a giant puddle of butter. This has only a very small puddle of butter, which can be easily swapped for oil (or if you DO want to be decadent, bacon fat). It doesn’t take much longer than just boiling the corn according to the instructions on the bag, but it’s WAY tastier. Both the roommates enjoyed it, and there weren’t any leftovers.

Easy Frozen Corn

2-3 Tbsp. butter
1 small onion, diced pretty fine
2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
1 lb. frozen corn

Heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium until it foams (…medium foaming). Add the onion and cook until it’s lovely and brown, stirring often. Add the garlic and cook until it’s fragrant, about 30 seconds. Dump in the corn while it’s still frozen, stir it up and plop a lid on, then drop the heat to medium-low. The ice crystals on the corn will melt and create enough liquid to steam it, and it will soak in the onion-garlic-butter flavor. Stir occasionally and cook until corn has reached desired doneness.
