Korean Corn Cheese


  • 1

    (15-ounce) can corn kernels, drained

  • ¼

    cup finely chopped red bell pepper

  • 3

    tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 1

    teaspoon granulated sugar

  • ¼

    teaspoon kosher salt

  • teaspoon black pepper

  • 1

    tablespoon unsalted butter

  • ¾ to 1

    cup shredded mozzarella cheese (see Tip)

  • 1

    scallion, thinly sliced


  1. Heat your broiler. In a medium bowl, combine corn, bell pepper, mayonnaise, sugar, salt and pepper.
  2. In an 8-inch cast-iron or ovenproof skillet, melt the butter over high. Add the corn mixture and sauté just until warmed, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Spread the mixture evenly into a single layer, then cover with cheese.
  4. Set the skillet on the rack nearest the broiler and cook until the cheese is golden brown in spots, about 3 to 4 minutes. (Keep a close eye on it, as oven temperatures may vary.)
  5. Sprinkle with the scallions and enjoy while it’s hot and cheesy!
