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 Food.com)
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.
