I always mix my corn (or peas for that matter) up with my mashed taters. Here's my interpretation of a recipe I found on the net for it. Originally there were 2 pages of ingredients and endless steps. Simply delicious.
- 3 ears fresh corn on the cob or 1 (15 ounce) can corn
- 3⁄4 cup heavy cream or 3⁄4 cup half-and-half
- 4 potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 2 -8 cloves garlic, smashed
- 2 -3 ounces butter
- 2 -3 tablespoons sour cream
- salt and pepper
- 1⁄4 cup chives or 1⁄4 cup scallion, work too (optional)
- Remove kernels from cobs and set aside (there should be about 2 or 3 cups of corn).
- Cook potatoes and garlic in boiling salted water until tender.
- Drain potatoes, reserving about a half a cup of liquid.
- Saute corn kernels in 1 tablespoon of butter, season with salt and pepper and cook 6-8 minutes.
- Set aside.
- Melt the remaining butter until it becomes brown lightly and begins to smell nutty.
- Remove the pan from the heat so it does not burn; there will be some brown whey in the bottom of the pan.
- Whip the potatoes with the mixer along with cream, browned butter and sour cream.
- Add additional potato cooking liquid as needed.
- Fold in corn kernals, season with salt and pepper.
- Mix in chives or scallions if using.
My husband's family insists on serving or being served mashed potatoes covered in creamed corn for every Holiday and that drives me crazy. This recipe was a really nice way to blend their tastes with mine and keep everyone happy. Thank you!
This is by far the best potato recpie that I have ever came across!!! What great luck!! TRY THIS!!!!! Thank you so much! YUMMY YUMMY!!
This is still one of my favorite comfort foods :) I could eat it everyday. Usually I just use regular milk in mine, and sometimes leave out the sour cream because of my picky dh. Yummmmmm!
