The Creamiest Creamed Corn Recipe

Creamiest fresh or frozen corn cream is a soothing side dish for summer picnics and Thanksgiving.  

– 2 1/2 lbs corn kernels. You can use fresh (about 12 medium ears,) or frozen. – 8 ounces cream cheese, cut in piece – 1/4 cup butter, cut in piece – 1/4 cup cream – 1 Tbsp sugar – 1/2 tsp salt – fresh cracked black pepper to taste – 1/4 tsp nutmeg, or more to taste



You must briefly par-cook fresh corn kernels off the cob. This is done in a large microwave bowl. 

Step 1

Step 2

Splash water and cover the basin. Microwave on high for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Proceed with recipe after draining.

Step 3

You can use frozen corn right away, or you can let it thaw on the counter first. Corn that is frozen has already been quickly cooked.

Step 4

Place the Dutch oven or big skillet over medium-low heat. As the sauce melts, stir it around a lot. This process will take a lot longer if you use frozen corn.

Step 5

After the corn and sauce are ready, gently heat everything. For a looser sauce, add extra cream or milk. 

Step 6

Adjust salt and nutmeg to taste. Serve hot with crushed black pepper and fresh thyme or basil. Reheat leftovers gently on the stove. More cream or milk thins the sauce.
