Fresh Creamed Corn in under 30 minutes! Stuffed full of fresh corn, cream and a touch of cream cheese you can throw this together in minutes. You’ll never go back to the canned stuff!
What do I need to make this homemade creamed corn:
- 6 ears of shucked corn – about 5 cups
- heavy cream
- yellow onion
- cream cheese
First remove your corn from the cob – this can be done easily by inverting a small bowl into a big bowl to keep all those kernals where you want ’em! I love this hack and use it all the time. Soups, salads etc.
Next, in a large skillet melt the butter. Add the onion and saute until soft. Add flour, mix it up a bit until a thick paste forms (a roux) and in goes the cream and milk!
Once that thickens toss in the corn and simmer until corn is soft.
Top with a bit of cream cheese for extra creaminess! Your almost done!
OPTIONAL BUT YUMMY: To add even more creaminess to this delicious Creamed Corn Recipe, we take about 1 cup of the cooked corn mixture and run it thru our blender or food processor then back in the pot!
Can I use frozen or canned corn in this recipe?
- We love the heartier texture of fresh but frozen thawed corn will work. We do not recommend canned – as it get a bit mushy.
How do I store this creamed corn? Can it be frozen?
- Store in an air tight container in the refridgerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in a skillet adding more milk if necessary to loosen it up.
- Freeze in freezer bags for up to 3 months. Thaw and reheat in skillet.
Don’t wait until the Holidays to make this delicious family friendly side dish!
