Pan-Roasted Corn

I recently came across this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, My Blessed Life, and it has seriously changed the way I look at corn!  I've always loved the occasional corn on the cob slathered with butter and sprinkled with salt during the summertime, but didn't really do much else with plain frozen corn besides nuke it in the microwave.

This recipe has changed all that!

This recipe adds some richness, depth, and a little heat to those juicy little kernels and makes an absolute melt-in-your mouth side dish!
