This is one of the most popular corn dishes during Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is not your traditional boring old corn. This recipe includes butter, cream and shallots. I always get rave reviews when I make this.

I've never had better frozen corn! I used onion as I didn't have shallots and half and half instead of cream to lower the fat content. Served it with smoked pork ribs and potato salad. Yum Yum! Read More

Easy to prepare and the cream added a nice taste and texture. Unfortunately we found this to be bland. I'll try this again with extra shallots. Read More

I couldn't figure out why this didn't have a higher rating until I read closer that it calls for frozen corn. I was searching for a home made creamed corn recipe so I had fresh corn & cut it off of the cob. It was spectacular!! I was short an ear & supplemented with about a 1/2 cup frozen kernels & you could totally tell which ones came from a bag. I highly recommend using fresh. I didn't use the nutmeg cuz I wasn't in the mood but followed the rest to a tee & can't wait to serve this at holidays. The corn was the star & the shallots added amazing depth of flavor! Thank you so much!:o) Read More

I liked the base of this recipe. I added fresh garlic when I sauteed the onions (what I had) skipped the nutmeg and added garlic salt at the finish. Wonderful! Read More

A perfect simple side dish to accompany our dinner tonight! I measured nothing... I used white onion since it's all I had on hand and skipped the sugar. For extra flavor and color (and cuz I know we like it) I skipped the water and let the corn and onion get a little charred before stirring in the remaining ingredients...yum! Time to eat! Read More
