Kids Cook! Get your kids involved in the kitchen by having them help out with this recipe. Here’s what they can do!* If they can, have them break the corn cobs in half. Then, if they're not too tired, they can measure out the rest of the ingredients. Dinner is pretty much done!
  • 4 cobs of corn (broken in half)
  • 2 tbsp (15 mL) butter
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) dried thyme leaves (or 1 tsp (5 mL) fresh thyme)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In large covered deep skillet or sauté pan, cook 4 cobs of corn (broken in half) in ¼ inch water until just tender; drain.
  2. Return to stove and cook until pan is dry. Add butter and season all over with dried thyme leaves (if desired) and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Heat cobs, turning often to coat until butter is bubbling and begins to brown.
Will keep for 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
