So Easy Old Fashioned Skillet Creamed Corn

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You will need about 6 ears of corn for this to make 2-1/2 cups, depending on the size of the corn cobs. I saute a small onion in the butter for about 3 minutes before adding in the corn kernels but that is only optional. This can also be made using frozen corn, and the recipe can be doubled.

WOW this is the best! We ate it for Christmas dinner with our honey baked spiral ham. YUMMY! My mom used to heat up Green Giant creamed corn once in a while, and this tastes just like it, but more fresh. Had to send the recipe to my sister in law! A MUST do if you like creamed corn. If I could give it a 6 star I would. I doubled the recipe, used frozen yellow and white corn, and added about 1/4 cup of water while it was simmering, to make it a little less thick. otherwise, it was perfect.
