Creamed corn – A quick and easy side dish made with corn fresh off the cob. Stewed in butter, milk, and cream with the aroma of garlic and spices. Definitely delicious! 😋

I have never offered this creamed corn recipe to anyone who hasn’t gone for a few seconds. Even picky eaters are over the moon with this recipe. Hmm, creamed corn is always at the top of my “favorite corn recipes” list.

Corn kernels cut straight from the cob and pulsed in a blender create the milky goodness that serves as the base for this cozy side dish. A creamy milk “sauce” is added to it, creating a perfect balance of umami and sweetness. It is one of the dishes that goes well with any main dish.
