Ingredients

  • 2 ears corn
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • kosher salt
  • grated Parmigiano Reggiano
  • egg for poaching

Instructions

  1. Clean the corn, removing all husks and threads. Working over a large bowl, grate the kernels off of the cob on the coarse side of a box grater. You will have a very wet coarse pulpy mixture.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the grated corn and season with a good pinch of salt. Simmer over low heat, stirring to prevent browning, for about 3 minutes. The mixture is ready when it just begins to thicken and set.
  3. Top with some grated Parmigiano Reggiano and/or a poached egg or some sautéed greens.
