How to Make Creamed Corn

  1. Mix the liquids. In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter. Once the butter has melted, add in the half and half, whole milk, cornstarch, and sugar. Stir to combine and cook until mixture starts to thicken. Do not boil.
  2. Cook with rest of ingredients. Add in the sweet corn, garlic powder, dried basil, and chopped bacon. Let cook on the heat for 5-7 minutes or until the sauce starts to thicken. If needed, add in some cornstarch to help it thicken faster.

Creamed Corn with Bacon

Can I Use Fresh Ingredients?

If you would like to use fresh corn, cut from the cob, that’s absolutely acceptable. Use about ¾ cup of fresh corn.

I would also recommend using fresh bacon in this recipe. An easy way to cook bacon is on a baking sheet in the oven. Lay down parchment paper, preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and cook for 15-18 minutes. Once finished, let the bacon cool, then cut into small pieces and use ½ cup for your creamed corn. This will require anywhere from 2-4 bacon pieces. But I also like extra, since bacon is so delicious.
