Set a medium-sized heavy bottom pan filled about ½ of the way up with your favorite frying oil, heat to 350˚F.

Heat the butter in a small sauce pan.  Add the onions and garlic, cook until soft.  Add the corn and cook for about 3-4 minutes.  Remove from the heat, add the jalapeno.  Slowly pour cooked vegetables into the eggs and milk, stirring constantly.
