Sweet Cream Corn ~ A traditional Thanksgiving side dish gets simplified.

Sweet Cream Corn

This is the last of my traditional Thanksgiving side dish posts. Now, if you have never had homemade cream corn, let me tell you it’s nothing, nothing, like the horrible can stuff.  I love this homemade cream corn because it has that sweet and salty combination and added to that is some parmesan cheese to give it an extra layer of flavor.

I’m keeping this post and the next two short because I know everyone is crazy busy with the holidays.

A few notes:

  • You can use fresh or frozen corn. I used frozen because it was easier.
  • For a lighter version you can switch out the cream for whole milk.
  • This can be made three days in advance.

      This looks and sounds delicious! But I am curious, the directions ask for ground mustard, but it is not listed in the ingredients…

        Hi Michelle,

        My apologies, no ground mustard.

      I’ve never had creamed corn but I think I’d like it!

      Btw, after all your delicious recipes, the other thing I love is that you do keep it brief. Makes it so much easier to pop in drool, read, & comment in between everything else going on. :)

      To be honest, creamed corn was never part of my Thanksgiving feast growing up but it is a favorite of my cousin’s family and is now always part of the celebration. Great that it can be made ahead of time and that it doesn’t need to go into the oven!!

      When made in advance, do you just follow all steps and then pour into container? Then reheat on stove top?
