Easy Creamed Corn with Parmesan
Where has this recipe been all my Thanksgivings?! Even though I’m writing this around Thanksgiving, I’m already planning on this corn dish gracing my table for Easter, too! Creamy and cheesy corn to accompany a honey glazed ham? Ah, duh!
Okay, picture it with me. I’m in my galley style kitchen, dancing around my three kids, throwing a mock Thanksgiving meal. The kids are screeching like pterodactyls while I try my best to concentrate on developing a flow in the kitchen so everything is timed perfectly.
Then it hits me- creamed corn on the stove top! The solution to a quick dish that is quite the side dish!
This way, I have my bacon wrapped turkey, parmesan potato au gratin and green beans all cooking in the oven at the same time and temperature. On the stove top, I have my creamed corn, glazed carrots, and a fresh cranberry sauce. Easy, and there is no fighting over which recipe takes cooking priority!

Tips to make garlic parmesan corn
- Use organic corn. Long and short of it, the highly controversial debate of GMOs is enough for me to pay a few extra sense for a peace of mind and an organic product that has more strict standards of growing.
- Use buttermilk if you want to tone down the sweetness of the corn. Whatever milk you have on hand will work- almond milk, buttermilk, half and half… it’ll all work!
- Salt the corn last. This dish may have enough flavor to do without the salt. Go ahead and grab a bite before you make that call.
