corn sandwich recipe

the filling for this corn sandwich is italian inspired with tomatoes, garlic and fresh basil. in olive oil the garlic is sauteed with steamed corn kernels. then tomatoes and fresh basil are added. so the stuffing has to be made first. you can also make the stuffing overnight and keep in the fridge.

to make these corn sandwiches:

  • i have used fresh sweet corn. i had cooked the corn cobs first and then added them to the stuffing. tinned corn would also work well.
  • i have used cheddar cheese but you can also use cream cheese or mozzarella cheese or regular cheese or nutritional yeast. in the recipe details i have mentioned when to add cheese. however you can skip adding cheese completely, if you prefer.

these corn sandwiches are a bit spicy. reduce the amount of black pepper and red chili flakes to make these less hot and spicy. the recipe serves 2 to 3 people, but you can easily double the recipe.

recipe notes

a few tips for making corn sandwiches:

  • the bread slices can be toasted separately too on a frying pan.
  • if making the filling overnight, then next day add the grated cheddar to the corn mixture just before grilling the sandwiches. 

vegan option to make corn sandwich recipe:

  • nutritional yeast is often used by vegans since it give a cheesy flavor to the dish. nutritional yeast is different from baker's yeast. its an inactive form of yeast which does not grow like baking yeast. so there is no leavening in the food. they are sold in the form of flakes or powder. as the name suggests, nutritional yeast is full of nutrition.
  • if using nutritional yeast then add 1 to 2 tablespoon of nutritional yeast at the step when you add corn kernels in the pan.

  4. Hi Dassana,

    New to your blog. Love it! Was looking for quick lunches that my Kindergartner can eat by herself without messing up too much. Came across this one, which mentions nutritional yeast. Not sure what that is?

  5. Hi Dassna,

    You recipie as always looks very good. I will try it for breakfast tomorrow. Also would you know where to get flaxseed powder or vital wheat gluten online may be ? There are so many healthy recipes over the web for breads / cakes which ask for these.

    Thanks for your help

    • hi shilpa. i have not seen flaxseed powder online. flaxseed is available. what i do is that i lightly roast the flaxseed and then grind them. flaxseed is available in most of the organic stores online like 24 letter mantra or down to earth. just search “buy organic india online” on google and you will get to see many online stores. i have not seen wheat gluten online. let me know which city you live. perhaps i can help you.

  11. Hi Dassana,
    This looks like a good recipe to try. However can you suggest any substitute to fresh basil leaves? Thank you.

    • hi ashwini, if you can get dry basil leaves… or even dry oregano or mix dry herbs would be good. i will also update the post.
