Leftover corn on the cob?

I grilled way to much corn last night. I know it's cheap, but I hate to waste it......I have about 10 ears that were done on the grill in aluminum foil. Any ideas?

  1. Corn freezes well, even cooked. You can freeze them on the cob or cut the kernels off and put in a freezer safe ziploc bag.

    1. Make a pasta with corn and gorgonzola and a little cream...comes from the Union Square Cafe cookbook. You could make a corn salad + there's a great recipe on this site under sides for corn with goat cheese, basil, and roasted red peppers.

      1. Slice the corn off the cob, mix with chopped avacado, cilantro and feta and toss with vinegar, lime or lemon juice, chili powder and salt and pepper.

        Or make cornbread.

          I haven't had them in years but my mother would scrape the corn of the cob and make corn fritters. I will have to remember that for next time I have leftover cobs..

              I have a very simple but delicious recipe for corn fritters; I believe this is a Venezuelan variety:


              10 ears of corn
              2 TB Sugar
              a dash of corn oil
              1 egg
              2 tsp salt

              Shuck the corn and throw these ingredients in a blender until smooth. Fry in very hot corn oil until brown on both sides. I make them fairly small (a couple of inches in diameter).

              Garnish with sour cream and scallions.

            OOH- that sounds good. Will have to try it next time we have leftovers. We have also used the leftover corn, onions, black beans, lime juice, cumin and a bit of olive oil for a quick salad- but next time I will add the avacado and cilantro, too.

              Or go with southwest flavors and do avocado, black bean, cilantro, grilled protein (I like shrimp), green onion, with a lime-chipotle-olive oil vinagrette

            2. Corn salsa, corn chowder, Bar-b-qued chicken salad, this could get a little Forrest Gump -like. I love to grill extra corn and chicken though for the salad the next day...just add black beans and cheddar cheese, and mix a little bbq sauce into some ranch dressing - que bueno!

              1. scrape the corn kernels off the cobb and make corn fritters--I like them with maple syrup-
