Dairy & Gluten Free Southern Fried Corn

Southern Fried Corn is one of those sides that I used to love getting at the lunch shops down in the Deep South.  I have fond memories of all the luscious sides such as greens, fried corn, buttered carrots and mac-n-cheese available.  Everything was cooked with love and soul by fabulous Southern women.  I ate more than my share of sides only platters while attending graduate school at Auburn University.  Oh the memories!

This is southern fried corn with a twist done dairy and gluten free.  It has fantastic flavor - the perfect balance of sweetness and rich butter flavor.  I hope that you try it and enjoy it as much as we do.

Southern Fried Corn - Dairy & Gluten Free

2 tbs dairy free butter substitute
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 lb frozen sweet corn, thawed and drained
1/4 tsp California Style Garlic Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 to 3 tsp sugar (depends on the sweetness of your corn)

In a large skillet saute the green onions and corn in the "butter" over medium high heat.
Season with the garlic salt and pepper.
Once the corn and green onions are cooked through, add the sugar a little at a time until your desired level of sweetness is achieved.
Continue sauteing until some of the pieces of corn are caramelized.


  1. MMMMMM,..;I love to eat corn but my husband & mostly the rest of the Belgian thinks that corn is an animal food. That's why, I need a lot of tasty corn recipes tghat I can make to change his mind!

    I wish & your family a lovely, warm, happy & fun year in food & in all what you are doing! Kisses! :)

  2. We love corn at our house! That is sad they do not like it in Belgium, maybe you can change their minds.
