Grandma’s Cream Corn

by Aubrey on November 16, 2010

creamed corn

All growing up Thanksgiving was at my Grandma’s house.  My sibling and cousin looked forward to it each year…her rolls, stuffing, awww and the cream corn.  I have asked her for recipes for each of these items and they all went a little like this, “Add a little of this, a little of that, and don’t forget to add that…” NO measurements or exact recipe!  Grrr!  So, I’ve been on a quest for years to find recipes that are similar to hers.

Alas, I found the cream corn!  This is heavenly!  You seriously have got to try it!  Have I convinced you yet?  If not, it is REALLY good!

Cream Corn


2 (10 oz) pkgs. frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. salt
2 T. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 T. butter
1 c. whole milk (I’ve used 2%)
2 T. flour
1/4 freshly grated Parmesan cheese


In a skillet over medium heat, combine the corn, cream, salt, sugar, pepper, and butter.  Whisk together the milk and flour, and stir in the corn mixture.  Cook stirring over medium heat until the mixture is thickened, and the corn is cooked through.  Remove from the heat, and stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted.  Serve hot.

(Oh and it’s not the healthiest, but it’s Thanksgiving!)

Yummy! I make homemade cream corn for Thanksgiving, too. Your recipe is different. I am going to have to try it out. Here is mine, if you are interested.
2 pkgs frozen sweet corn.
2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 pkgs of cream cheese
Just throw it all together in a saucepan and let it get warm. :-)

Hi, I’d like to know where can I buy the heavy cream and what is the can look alike. Because when I was looking for that cream, I just saw only cream of chicken, mushroom and other. I’ve never been try to cook this.

The heavy cream will be in the dairy refrigerated section. You shouldn’t have a problem finding it there, it may even say heavy whipping cream. Good luck!
