Full Answer

One of the easiest ways to make creamed corn is to use cream cheese. Cook 2 ounces cream cheese and 2 tablespoons milk in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Once the cheese is melted, stir in 1 can cream-style corn and 10 ounces corn kernels. Cook for four minutes, stirring occasionally, and serve sprinkled with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1/3 cup sliced green onions.

Alternatively, melt 1/3 cup butter over medium heat. Stir in 1/3 cup all-purpose flour until smooth. Add 1 cup whipping cream, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and a dash of pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, and cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 5 cups corn kernels, and heat through. Transfer the mixture to a broiler-proof dish, sprinkle with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and broil for three to five minutes.

Another easy recipe is to use fresh corn. Mix 2 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels, 1 tablespoon flour and 3 tablespoons butter, and transfer to a large skillet. Cook over medium heat for five minutes, stirring often.

Add 1 cup heavy cream, and continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
