Corn Cobs With Cheddar Butter

A cheesy spread on fresh summer corn may seem like gilding the lily, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Enjoy leftover cheddar butter on biscuits.

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 15 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 6 ears corn, shucked and broken in half
  • 3 tablespoons butter, room temperature

  • Ground pepper


  1. Step 1

    Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add corn, and cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together butter, cheese, and a pinch of pepper.

  3. Step 3

    Serve corn immediately, with cheddar butter on the side (and a knife for spreading).
