Tiktok Corn Cheese is probably one of the easiest and most child friendly side dish recipes ever. With canned corn, butter, cheese and mayo, this corn side goes with any main dish mean from chicken breast dinners, perfect steak and even BBQ!
Because its incredibly simple, this dish is also easily duplicated, doubled and tripled for large events like potlucks or picnics where serving a lot of people at once is a must.
And because just mainly about keeping the corn and cheese warm, this dish can also be put in a crock pot (slow cooker) to serve hot and melty.

This dish is super simple because it uses canned corn and the creamy base with the mayo makes it easy to stir and the cheesy stringy on each scoop.
- Corn – the original TikTok recipe uses canned corn (Drained of course) but out of food blogging experience, we also know that this recipe can also use frozen corn. Fresh corn can always be sautéed as well but takes much longer so do not recommend going through the trouble.
- Mayo – We recommend Hellmann’s or Dukes mayo. Do not substitute miracle whip.
- Butter – Real butter, doesn’t need to be pre-softened as it will melt easily in the pan.
- Cheese – We used mild cheddar, which worked perfectly, although any shredded cheese will work just fine.
Make Faze Rugs “Corn Cheese” Recipe
See below on ingredients and full measurements from making this recipe. Its super simple but here are a few tips.
Drain everything well: When working with canned vegetables that go on the stove, its important to drain well and rid the can of extra moisture. If you leave a lot of water in the dish, it will water down the cheesy, butter and mayo and not have the same delicious consistency.
Real Ingredients Matter: As a food blogger, I am a big proponent of full fat food. Real butter, real mayo. While you could substitute with “diet” low fat ingredients, corn shouldn’t be treated that way.
Toppings work to personalize this dish: Black cracked pepper and a bits of crunchy bacon pieces really brings this one home!
Substitutions for mayo: We know that a lot of people really hate mayo and it will change the taste if you take it out. But if its a no go for you, try substituting mayo with sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.
Be careful of too much Salt: I love adding salt to dishes and absolutely agree that seasonings matter, BUT BUT BUT canned corn and shredded cheese often have salt as a preservative, so before you add EXTRA salt, make the dish and try it and THEN add salt IF needed.
