My family loves canned creamed corn but I can't stand it. I finally came up with this recipe so we could all get along at supper. LOL!
- 1 (10 -16 ounce) package frozen corn, cooked
- water, for cooking corn
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups milk
- 2 -3 tablespoons sugar
- salt and pepper (optional)
- Cook corn according to package directions; I use the microwave.
- Melt butter in saucepan, stir in flour and blend well.
- Add milk, about 1/2 cup at a time, and blend with whisk.
- Cook over medium heat until thickened.
- Stir in sugar, salt and pepper.
- Add cooked, drained corn.
- Hint: sometimes I use part milk, part cream.
Very delicious and simple! I followed the recipe exactly, just used 1 cup 2% milk and 1 cup regular milk, cooked chopped onions w/the corn, and the dish was still rich and creamy. Also for a little color, sprinkled a little smoked paprika on top. Will definitely use again!
Twenty minutes ago I went to the kitchen and made this. I was out of creamed corn, and I needed some for a corn casserole recipe I wanted to make for supper tonight. I didn't want to drive to the store for just a can of corn, and I really had a hankering for that casserole! So I found this recipe and thought I'd give it a whirl. Boy! Is this stuff good! I left out the sugar because I have a very tiny sweet tooth, and I used skim milk, although I bet it'd be wonderful with some half and half. Rich, creamy, smooth, I almost couldn't stay out of it! Had to remind myself that I need it for something else. I have never cared for creamed corn from a can, I never even considered making it, never occured to me that you could! I mean, why would I want to? I don't like it! The only way I'd eat it is if it was in something else. Now, my life has changed, I love this stuff. I can only expect that it will go really well in my casserole ! TY! TY! TY!
The family loved this at Thanksgiving. This is going into my recipe files. Thanks for sharing this easy, basic, and good recipe.
