Korean Corn Cheese

Have you had Korean Corn Cheese? They are served at Korean bbq restaurants in a sizzling hot platter or as a bar snack in Korea.

You only need a handful of ingredients to make this delicious dish. Serve as a dip with bread /chips or as a side.

This is a great make ahead dish. Add ingredients into a baking dish and place in the fridge. When ready to serve, add cheese and broil / bake in the oven or heat on the stovetop and cover to melt cheese.

I usually make this with fresh corn in the summer but any other time, I use canned. Frozen works as well.
