CREAMED CORN RECIPE VIDEO
Happy almost Thanksgiving! but really every day can be a day of thanks, or maybe I’m just looking for an excuse to eat this Creamed Corn every. single. day.
To be honest, I didn’t grow up eating creamed corn. It has never been a Thanksgiving side tradition so I wasn’t sure how much I would like it the first time I made it. And to be honest, I am now in love with creamed corn. with this version of creamed corn.
This Slow Cooker Creamed Corn with Ricotta, Rosemary and Bacon is the ultimate creamed corn that will have you licking the crockpot itself. I am so in love with it, in fact, I’m already concocting all sorts of ways to add some protein and make it a full on main dish so it will be somewhat less shameless when all I want to devour for dinner is creamed corn for dinner.
What is creamed corn?
Creamed corn, also known as “cream-style corn,” is an American side dish that is a creamy, almost soupy version of sweet corn. The sweet corn is partially pureed, releasing the milky substance of each kernel combined with cream cheese and/or heavy cream to create a rich, creamy bath for the corn. The whole corn and puréed corn simmered until tender to create a luxurious side that is the perfect balance of sweet and savory, fresh yet creamy.
Why is this the Best Creamed Corn ?
As I was researching other crockpot creamed corn recipes, several comments mentioned how those recipes tasted more like corn in cream sauce instead of creamed corn. One commentor, however, shared how her grandma’s recipe actually pureed some corn and added that to the cream sauce. Bingo. So wee not only puree some of the corn, we also puree it with cream cheese, ricotta, heavy cream and spices.
Just a dash of a variety of seasonings adds an additional dimension of yum to the already heavenly cream corn, making it the BEST CREAMED CORN EVER, in my humble opinion. Even the Blender Creamed Corn was so intoxicatingly delicious, I was eating it plain! After you add your Blender Creamed Corn to the Slow Cooker, you stir it all around with some butter and let it cruise until you can’t stand it any longer. So easy, so perfectibility sweet and savory, sooooo creamy and – then there is bacon. Drool.
