Corn Options for Creamiest Creamed Corn:
Frozen corn is so easy, and we are all about keeping things simple. You can also use corn on the cob, just cut it right off the cob. No need to cook it first. Canned corn isn’t preferred, but can be done in a pinch. Simply drain the canned corn first.
Heavy Cream Substitute:
If you are looking for a lighter variety of creamed corn, you can always substitute the heavy cream with half and half (half whole milk and half cream).
We love this recipe as is, but you can always top it with crumbled bacon and chives.
