Forget the stuff that comes in a can – this recipe for creamed corn will have you begging for more!

Creamed Corn | Taste and Tell

This is really my favorite time of year when it comes to food.  It just doesn’t get any better than cheap prices on local, fresh produce.  Living in Utah, it seems like there are only weeks to enjoy all the produce at it’s finest because of the cold weather that comes in and (in my opinion) stays for too long.  But these few weeks in August where the peaches are ripe and the corn is sweet and the tomatoes are just perfect – these weeks are my favorite.

Last week, I had so much fun sharing all kinds of peach recipes.  And this week, I am moving onto corn.  Yes – I am bringing 6 great corn recipes to you this week!

Creamed Corn | Taste and Tell

Up first is one of my new all-time favorite side dish recipes.  Yes, it’s one of those recipes that takes a really healthy ingredient – corn – and turns it into something not so healthy by adding all kinds of other ingredients – mainly butter and cream.  But it is so good.  I made homemade creamed corn for the first time last year.  And I really liked it.  But then, at a family dinner, my sister brought along this corn.  I couldn’t get enough of it.  And when she made it a second time, I begged her for the recipe.  Then she told me that I didn’t need to beg her for it – I already had it in our latest family cookbook!  (And come to find out, it’s also online!)  And now, this is definitely my go-to creamed corn recipe.

This recipe is the creamed corn recipe at Lawry’s Steakhouse.  I’ve never been to a Lawry’s before, but I now know they have the best creamed corn!  After studying many other creamed corn recipes online, I found out what makes this one different that all the rest.  One little ingredient – the flour.  With this recipe, you make a roux with butter and flour before adding in the cream, which makes a thicker cream base than most other recipes.  I can’t believe what a difference that one ingredient makes.  And the beauty of this recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen corn. (I actually made mine with frozen, even though you see fresh corn in the background.  I didn’t want to take the time to cut off all the kernels.  I know, talk about lazy!!)

So if you find yourself scrambling for a side dish to go along with dinner, this is one the whole family will love!

    A) I’m so excited for corn week!

    B) I am in love with this recipe already. It’s now on the list for this week. HOLY.

  2. Looks absolutely perfect!! I love corn too…can’t wait for the rest of this week!

  3. Ive never even had creamed corn! I dont think its a very ‘UK’ thing, or maybe its just me living a sheltered life! What i DO know though is i very much like the sound of this. It may be a really silly question but when you say fresh or frozen corn…does that include canned sweetcorn? and if so do you know what kinda sized can would be needed? Thank you! Another lovely recipe 🙂

  4. I love creamed crown, but I’ve only made it using canned cord. Fresh corn would be even better!

  5. Oh I love corn! I can’t wait to see what else you have for the rest of the week!

    I’m so happy that my corn pesto coincided with corn week! I adore corn and can’t wait to see what you have in store for us. I’ve never had real creamed corn but I know I’d love it.

    This is my favorite way to eat corn! Yum!

  8. Danae says:

    This is perfect timing. My mom brought me a box of corn which is currently taking up half of my refrigerator, and I had no idea what to do with it all!

  9. Oh man, oh man, oh man! I can NOT wait to make this! I LOVE creamed corn and have been on the search for the PERFECT creamed corn recipe for ages. Thanks so much for sharing!

    I love this recipe(au gratin)and agree that it’s all the deference with the flour. I also put one more ingredient that takes it to a whole new level…cayenne pepper. Trust me it’s simply delish!

    This sounds delicious! I ♥creamed corn! One question though. What kind of cream do you mean? Sour cream? Heavy whipping cream? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I really plan on doing this for Thanksgiving.

    Thanks in advance.

  12. Janie says:

    Great! Thank you! I’m pretty sure I will. Looks delish! 😉

  13. Janie says:
