Corn is one of my favorite veggies. I love grilled corn, creamed corn...and just plain ole corn off the cob with butter, salt and pepper.
I especially love when corn is in season. Fresh, juicy, sweet corn.
There are a lot of ways you can make corn, but when the weather starts to heat up and bbq's and get-togethers by the pool with friends and family start filling up the calendar, this has become one of my go-to recipes.

In a medium pan heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil over medium low heat. Saute the onions, bell pepper and garlic until tender.
In a large bowl, combine the egg, sour cream, whipping cream, 2 TB vegetable oil, melted butter and green chillies.
Cut the corn off the cob and then run the knife up the cob to release the remaining "milk"
Add corn to the mixture.

Bake for 40 minutes. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and bake for an additional 10 - 15 minutes or until golden brown and the center is set.
