We love fried chicken, especially the crispy, salty skin. When I was in Nashville a few years ago my husband stopped at a small diner to grab a bite to eat and instead of French fries on the side of our burgers we were served these delicious discs of potatoes that had an almost fried chicken coating on them. They were crispy, crunchy and salty on the outside, but soft and fluffy on the inside....

FAQs

What is Korean Corn Cheese?

It’s a simple and delicious side dish most commonly served and eaten with Korean BBQ. At restaurants it’s often made in an insert around the grill right at the table, or brought to the table in a sizzling, bubbling, hot dish. This dish also makes a great dip to be served with tortilla chips or toasted bread.

Do you have to use fresh corn?

No! You can use canned corn or frozen corn. If using canned corn, thoroughly drain kernels from 1 (15 ounce) can and make sure to omit the 1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar as canned corn sits in a naturally sweet brine.

If using frozen corn (about 1 1/3 cups), thaw completely and drain any excess water before continuing to make the recipe as instructed.

Why add sugar?

A small amount of sugar is added to further bring out the corns natural sweetness and add a nice balance to the creamy mayonnaise and salty cheese.

Can you make this dish ahead of time?

Yes! This dish can be made up to 2 days ahead of time. Simply mix together and place all the ingredients into a baking dish. Tightly cover and refrigerate until ready to bake and serve.

Can this recipe be frozen?

Yes! This dish can be frozen for up to 2 months. Simply mix together and place all the ingredients into a baking dish. Tightly wrap in plastic wrap or foil and freeze. When ready to bake and serve, add an additional 10 to 15 minutes to the baking time, until the cheese has melted and the dish has heated through, then continue to broil for the usual 2 minutes as directed in the recipe.

This Korean Corn Cheese is one of my favorite simple summer side dishes to make. I love that it’s so simple and takes less then 20 minutes to make! While it’s traditionally made to be eaten with Korean BBQ, it’s really wonderful with other BBQ recipes as well like our Honey Hoisin Baby Back Ribs, our Mango-Habanero Glazed Spare Ribs or even our Grilled Tri-Tip Sandwiches.
