Easy Creamed Corn

OMG! This is sooooooo good. I am not even kidding. Who doesn’t love creamed corn? Eating this was happiness in my mouth. It is like every time I took a bite my mouth did a happy dance, I swear I could eat this creamed corn everyday! I never thought to put cheese on creamed corn…. but it works! The cheese makes it a lot more tasty, not that it isn’t delicious without the cheese, but adding the cheese makes it too darn yummy!

I was chatting with one of my Canadian friends over the phone after I cooked this, and of course I start bragging about how yummy the corn turned out, he then responds and says, “I have never even tried creamed corn before”.

I forgot that creamed corn is not a popular side dish among Canadians.Β The first time I tried creamed corn is when I moved to the south. Here in Georgia you can find creamed corn at practically any restaurant, and every grocery store. I used to live in Canada, and I don’t remember seeing creamed corn at the grocery store. They most likely sell it in Canadian grocery stores, I just never thought to look for it.

This easy creamed corn recipe takes under 10 minutes to make, with virtually no prep work, and taste 10x better than the canned version bought at the store.

This recipe easily serves 4 people, and is an excellent holiday dish for this upcoming Easter! If you need to make more for a larger crowd, adjust recipe.

      You and me both girl, because I absolutely adore creamed corn as well!!! So GOOD! The cheese is the icing on the cake for this recipe. Yes, I remember when I lived in Canada it did not seem too popular. I didn’t even know they sold it in the grocery stores, because I never went to look for it when I lived there. Now that I am living in the south I am all about some creamed corn! I ate almost 4 servings to my face! πŸ™‚

      Creamed corn is surely favored down here in the south, and I am not to sure why Canadians don’t eat more of it, but they should! It is too good! and THANK YOU Demeter, πŸ™‚
