Updated November 2, 2016

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 medium stalk celery, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1 jar (2 oz) diced pimientos, drained
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder or 1/4 teaspoon dried minced onion

Steps

  • 1
    Rinse frozen corn with cold water to separate; drain. In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook corn, onion and celery in butter 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender.
  • 2
    Stir in remaining ingredients; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until corn is tender.

  • You can use 2 tablespoons dried minced onion in place of the fresh onion.
  • Look in the frozen-food case for bags of frozen chopped onions. Keep them on hand for fuss-free chopped onion.
  • Newer varieties of frozen corn are available. Look for extra-sweet gold & white corn.
