The BEST Garlic Parmesan Corn

It’s corn on the cob season! Here's my all-time favorite way to make corn and I bet it will become yours too! Think yummy garlic bread only on top of corn instead of bread. It's so hard to believe that something this simple to make, can taste so over-the-top delicious!!! Truly a fantastic way to serve this summer gem all season long. Each medium piece of corn has 96 calories and 2 grams of fat

Helpful Tips About this Recipe

Makes 4 servings

Healthy Benefits
Corn is a good source of folate, fiber and contains a little niacin, magnesium, and vitamin C.

Shopping Tips
Choose ears with bright green, snugly fitting husks that are fresh looking. The silk should be dry, not soggy.  The kernels should be plump and milky and come all the way to the ear’s tip. Don’t buy corn that’s been husked-the the husk was probably removed by the market because it was discolored or wilted. An exception is the packages of already husked corn at places like Trader Joe’s. They’ve been husked, packaged, and taste great!
