Easy Recipe ~ Herbed Corn for a Crowd


If your family is anything like my family, everyone shows up with an assigned dish for family dinners. I usually get asked to make a side dish. One of my favorite vegetables to make for dinner parties is my Herbed Corn for a Crowd.

It’s really easy to make and is perfect for pot lucks. Once I finish mixing everything up, I dump it into a tupperware container and head out. A few minutes in the microwave is all it needs to be steaming hot on the buffet line.

2 cups water

First, put the frozen corn and water into a pot and bring the water to a boil. If you need to add a little extra water, that’s ok. But the frozen corn will release water as it thaws too.

Once the water boils, reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Simmer for 5-6 minutes.

Novice Notes: Boil means big bubbles that burst at the surface. Simmer means itty bitty bubbles that hug the edges of the pot. To get anything to boil, turn the burner to high. To get it to simmer, first get the liquid to a boil and then reduce to the lowest possible heat and cover the pot to keep the steam inside so the liquid doesn’t reduce while you are simmering.

Herbed Corn for a Crowd | Future ExpatIf you are still waiting on the corn to finish simmering, you can toss all of the herbs into a small dish. Or you can just wait for the next step and add them one at a time to the corn.

Once the corn is finished simmering, drain all of the water and return the corn back to the pot. Or, if you are going to take it to a potluck or won’t be serving it right away, you can just pour the corn into your carton at this point.

Add all of the other ingredients and give it a good stir. The butter will melt and you’ll be all ready to serve or reheat in the microwave later.
