- You can use tinned/canned corn instead of fresh corn. I have used american sweet corn but even regular corn would taste good.
- You could also use cream and cheese together in this recipe. Even just adding cream would taste great.
- If you want a baked version, then this is what you have to do. Add about 5 tbsp cream towards the end of the recipe just before removing it from fire. Take the mix in a bowl. Top grated cheese on top and bake it in the oven for a couple of minutes till the cheese melts and browns. Your baked cheese spinach corn is ready.
- If there are any leftovers they could be used as a stuffing for pancakes and also can be used as a stuffing for grilled or toasted corn sandwich.
