Mama's Skillet Corn

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

Mama used to make this as soon as the fresh corn came in. It is similar to creamed corn in sweetness but the kernels are left whole. A great summertime dish. When my boys whine enough in the winter I will make this with frozen corn.

Nice corn. Defintely a "back in the day" recipe which is fun. Mine was a bit bland, so I added extra seasoning salt and a few onion flakes. Serving for dinner tonight with BBQ chicken. Made for BEVY Tag. FYI. . .I had given this 4 stars, but after 2 hours in the fridge the flavors really came together and I am back to increase my rating to a 5. Hubby really enjoyed it!!! UPDATE: I just made this again last evening as a fast and easy side dish to BBQ. This time my sauce was really thick (which we love). I cheated and added about 1 T of cream cheese and some milk and WOW did that take this recipe over the top.
