Roasted Mexican Street Corn & Chicken Frittata

Corn and Chicken Frittata

I wish every week we could go on a honeymoon.  My husband and I love to travel and I can’t wait to show our boys the world (as much as our budget will allow).  Early on in our courtship, my husband and I knew we had a mutual love of food and roads.  So, naturally when we got married, he was a master at planning our “secret” honeymoon.  I could never have planned a better trip.

Corn on the Cob

After a brief stay at our favorite place in Durham we ventured up to Washington DC for a few days as the first leg on a two week road trip.  He had bought us tickets to the Taste of DC – a huge foodie tasting tour in front of the Capital Building.  Even though I was sick, I still enjoyed it – in spirit at least.

Oh and a brief, unpaid plug.  My husband loves Duke’s.  Yes, the mayonnaise.  I’d tried it once before and I stuck to my regular brand, but now have tried it again – and it really has made me fall in love with mayonnaise again.

One of the favorite things I tasted was Mexican Street Corn: mayo, cheese, cayenne, corn – what’s not to love?  So, I wanted to recreate the corn and turn it in to a frittata.  It turned out great!  Here you go.  If you like corn casserole and quiche – you will love this.  Its like a cross between a spicy corn casserole and a quiche.  And if you have little ones eating it, just lay off the cayenne.
