I think this is the ultimate dish to make when sweet Jersey corn is in season. Combined with tomatoes, zucchini and basil, it makes for a spectacular side for brunch, lunch or dinner. —Erin Chilcoat, Central Islip, New York

"I really enjoyed it. Question though - do you think it would work to make ahead of time and freeze - just defrost and cook?"

"I always like this combination of vegetables. Maybe because I used frozen corn, this turned out a lot runnier than some similar recipes I have used."
