Easy stovetop recipe for homemade creamed corn that will your best side dish for any occasion, from holidays to weeknight dinner. Made from frozen or fresh corn, with lots of cheese and cream in the skillet or pot!

a bowl of creamed corn

Creamed corn is a classic Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish that is also widely used as a side dish at your weekday dinner table. Can be made in slow cooker, in pressure cooker (Instant pot for example) or at the stovetop, like in this recipe.

Everybody make their creamed corn differently, some use sugar, some not. Some cooks use fresh or canned corn and i prefer frozen. I really enjoy the dish and the recipe is very to follow.

What is creamed corn made of?

Creamed corn origin as a Native American cuisine but nowadays you can find lots of different variations of the recipe. My recipe includes:

  1. Heavy cream or half and half
  2. Sugar, salt and pepper
  3. Butter
  4. Milk
  5. Flour
  6. Frozen corn

What can i use if i dont have heavy cream?

This recipe calls for 1 cup of heavy cream. You can substitute it to the equal amount of half and half or you can use 1/2 cup of milk mixed with 2 tablespoon of butter. That should work!

Also you can make a lighter version of creamed corn switching the whole amount of cream to just milk. Not sure that consistency will be the same but at least it will be lighter in calories.

More delicious side dishes

Side dishes are not only salads or grilled veggies! Try to make mashed veggies in your instant pot or use that air fryer for a healthy crunchy vitamin packed side.

  1. Air fryer corn on the cob
  2. Instant pot mashed butternut squash
  3. Instant Pot collard greens with bacon
  4. Air fryer roasted asparagus
  5. Garlic sauteed green beans

This creamed corn will be perfect with Smoked turkey breast and Instant Pot turkey legs…or Crock pot brown sugar pineapple ham!
