Leftover Grilled Corn Ideas?

I've got 3 leftover ears of fresh corn we grilled on the grill last night. What can I do with them besides eat them as-is? They are unseasoned, just roasted nicely, Last week I used some leftover corn in a corn/tomato/cucumber salad with lime juice and red bell pepper. It was good, but I don't want to do the same thing. Ideas please! Thanks!

        Add those kernels to a green salad. Or salsa. Or gazpacho.

      2. well i was going to suggest a charred corn salad but you shot that down ;) you can cut the kernels of and give them a quick toss with some butter or oil in a hot pan, then finish with fresh herbs and grated cheese.


        1. Corn chowder! It would be absolutely awesome with grilled corn. Fry a few slices of diced bacon until the fat is rendered. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon. In the fat, sweat some diced onion and celery and some fresh thyme (dry is okay too.) Then add some diced potatoes and enough chicken stock to cover. (You can also add a can of creamed corn if you want more corn flavor.) Simmer until the potatoes are tender and then add some half-and-half or cream, the corn, and the bacon. Finish with some fresh-grated nutmeg and a dash of sherry if you want. One of my favorites!

          1. I just made corn fritters for brekkie. cut the corn off the cob, add an egg, a heaping tbl. spoon of flour and fry away. Top w/ a fried egg.

              I like my leftovers for breakfast too. I am a bit sorry I ate all the leftover corn this morning without having read the fritter suggestion - sounds awesome.

              I chop up a jalapeno, remove the corn from the cob, chop up any other leftovers that appeal - potatoes, sausage, squash, etc. and then brown them in a cast iron skillet. Top with fried egg, S&P.
