1 (15-ounce) can corn kernels, drained
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
3/4 to 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (see Tip)
1 scallion, thinly sliced
Heat your broiler. In a medium bowl, combine corn, bell pepper, mayonnaise, sugar, salt and pepper.
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.
Spread the mixture evenly into a single layer, then cover with cheese.
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.)
Sprinkle with the scallions and enjoy while it’s hot and cheesy!
Tip: For extra flavor, blend mozzarella with another mild, melty cheese like Muenster. Readers also suggested a cheddar mix.
