Sweet Corn and Eggs
When I was younger, one of my closest friends Daniela and I enjoyed hopping off the school bus together and spending time at each other’s homes. Her mother, being Colombian, always had some kind of scrumptious meal whipped up for us. A lot of these foods were new to me, but needless to say, I enjoyed trying everything! One that stands out for me was a corn and scrambled egg dish. I thought it was so delicious, that I asked my own mother if she could make some for me as well. It’s a comforting plate that can be savored for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Here’s a version I found by Angela Roberts from her website Spinach Tiger. Thanks for sharing with us, Angela! The soft, creamy eggs pair perfectly with the crunchy sweet corn. Customize by adding delicious mix-ins such as tomato, avocado or scallion. Children can have fun helping with cracking eggs, scrambling, mixing, and husking the corn.
