How Do You Make Creamed Corn?
Start off by cutting the kernels from the cob and setting them aside. Drizzle some oil into a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the kernels to the skillet and fry for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the fresh garlic, sugar, and butter and cook for 1 minute. Add the all-purpose flour and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in the heavy cream and cook for 10 minutes while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
Top Tips and Recipe Variations
- I used fresh corn for this recipe but if corn isn’t in season you may use canned corn or frozen corn. If using frozen corn, let it thaw at room temperature before cooking it.
- Do not omit the sugar, it gives it a sweet corn taste but not overly sweet.
- If you want to spice things up, add one diced jalapeno or 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper.
- Add some crispy bacon on top for some crunch.
- Garnish with fresh parsley or scallions.
Once you make this creamed corn recipe, you will never make it any other way. This is the easiest and most delicious recipe ever. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them down below.
