Instant Pot® Creamed Corn

Rating: 4.4 stars
The use of an Instant Pot® allows you to make amazing creamed corn without anything from a can. Although the goal of this recipe is to use fresh corn, frozen corn may be used if thawed and drained.

Spicy and Cheesy Creamed Corn

Rating: 4.4 stars
Delicious, ever so creamy, slightly spicy. I got this recipe from my girlfriend who made this for a Thanksgiving dinner. I found this side dish super YUMMY! For a super, mild, creamed corn dish, omit the jalapenos.

Smoky Poblano Corn Pudding

Rating: 4.58 stars
In our family, a warm bowl of corn is always on our Thanksgiving table. My mom dumps a few bags of frozen corn into boiling water while the turkey rests and the potatoes get mashed. She'll then inevitably forget about the now water-logged corn until we are sitting at the table ready to eat. And still a Thanksgiving table without corn is not complete in my mind. This dish transforms frozen corn into a decadent and richly flavored dish with just a bit more work than setting a pot of water to boil.

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Rating: 4.62 stars
This is a no-nonsense recipe for corn on the cob. Perfect for when you run out of stove or grill space. I freeze the corn on the cob in plastic bags, and remove a single ear of frozen corn in the cold winter months to have the sweet taste of summer corn throughout the year!

Mexican Grilled Corn

Rating: 4.76 stars

I consider this to be the greatest corn-on-the-cob recipe of all time. The way the mild, subtly salted cheese works with an ancho-lime mayonnaise, along with that buttery, smoky corn, is a magnificent combination of flavors. Perfecto!
