We had some bread with it that I am going to post tomorrow because it also turned out really well. Does it seem like some days go really well in the kitchen and some days it's almost better to give up and order pizza? It does for me. I am excited to add this to our favorite recipes and glad that I have been blogging. Otherwise I wouldn't have kept track of any measurements and would have never been able to duplicate it again. It has all the ingredients of a loaded baked potato. Well, except the corn and I didn't have any sour cream or I might have used that, but buttermilk seemed to work well and I had some left over from our Cafe Rio Dressing. It might also be delicious with some chives on top.

3 T white cooking wine (might be optional)
1 1/2 cups frozen corn

1/2 cup shredded cheese, plus extra for garnish
