Corn Debates

I am a big fan of corn. No matter how it’s made, I like it. That includes roasted corn, cornbread, creamed corn, corn on the cob, corn chowder, etc. My husband though, he has some sort of texture issue with corn that makes him anti-creamy corn. So basically, he’s missing out on corn happiness.

A few years ago my mom made spoon cornbread for thanksgiving. I adored it. Sometimes I find cornbread to be a little dry, but not that stuff. It was freaking good. However, my husband has his corn texture issue, so I haven’t seen a reason to make it myself. I stick to things like Skillet Cornbread.

Spoon Cornbread with Skillet Roasted Corn

Over the summer I made Skillet Mexican Street Corn. It opened my eyes to indoor ‘roasting’ of corn. I have been thinking a lot about how to include that in my life more often. Then, I had an opportunity.

Last month my friend Jayme asked if I would make her husband Michael my Churro Cake for his birthday. I agreed, but when it was ready we were having trouble finding a time that she could pick it up from me. Finally, I decided it only made sense to just have them over for dinner and serve it for dessert. Since it was Michael’s birthday, I wanted to make him food that he liked.

Love Doesn’t Mean Knowing Fave Foods

I asked Jayme to tell me some of Michael’s favorite foods. Her answer was, “I’m not sure. Is that bad?” It actually encouraged me because after thinking about it, I realized that if someone asked my my husband’s favorite foods, my answer would be, “He likes meat. But not dessert.”

So anyhow, Jayme followed it up and said that Michael likes spoon cornbread. I was so excited. It was like the stars aligned and I finally had a reason to make it and eat it. I decided the spoon cornbread needed to have skillet roasted corn. I started with my mom’s spoon cornbread recipe and tweaked it here and there until it turned into a life changing side dish. The kind of side dish that makes you want to skip the main course.

This spoon cornbread with skillet roasted corn is happiness in a dish. It’s the perfect side dish for almost any meal, including holiday meals!

Note: I bake mine in a Le Creuset Stoneware 9-Inch Oval Baking Dish. I like the way it bakes and cleans compared to glass dishes.
