Clean the corn, removing all husks and threads. Working over a large bowl, grate the kernels off of the cob on the coarse side of a box grater. You will have a very wet coarse pulpy mixture.
Melt the butter in a small or medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add the grated corn and season with a good pinch of salt. Sauté over low heat, stirring to prevent browning, for about 3 minutes. The mixture is ready when it just begins to thicken and set.
Top with some grated Parmigiano Reggiano and/or a poached egg or some sautéed greens. Season with fresh cracked pepper if desired.
