Creamed Corn

I am often looking for a side dish that isn't potatoes.  We roast a vegetable with almost every meal but sometimes, I am wanting something more exciting and different.  Jenna was home from college last weekend.  She isn't a fan of potatoes so I decided to try this cream corn recipe.  We loved it.  She especially loved it with her rolls.  Jenna had hers in a bowl so it wouldn't touch her steak!  :)  Chris enjoyed his in typical cream corn fashion.

Creamed Corn (adapted from

1   16 oz pkg of frozen corn, cooked according to pkg directions
3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp flour
2 cups milk (I used skim milk - would be great with some cream or half/half)
2 - 3 Tbsp. sugar
salt and pepper

Cook corn according to directions in the microwave.  Melt butter in saucepan, stir in flour and blend well.  Add milk slowly, about a 1/2 cup at a time, blending with a whisk.  Heat over medium heat, stirring, until mixture starts to thicken.  Drain corn and add to mixture.  Continue to thicken until desired consistency. Taste and add any extra salt and pepper.
