I love corn and I love green onions so I couldn't pass up this recipe. It was good! I was surprised that even my husband scarfed it down. I don't know why I was surprised but I was. My son wouldn't touch it. Picky.
Someone brought something like this to a cookout we attended last year so I know I'm not the only one who likes this kind of thing (people usually bring their favorite recipes to cookouts). I like the addition of the green onions but you could add whatever you like - jalapenos would be good.
I got to use the corn scraper an online friend sent me way back when. I should have taken a picture of it - it looks like a vegetable peeler. It works great. I love when I get to use one of my gadgets.
Question: Do you suffer from kitchen gadgetitis (the inability to pass up a kitchen gadget)? I think I have a mild case of it.
