So I may or may not have said before that I do not like corn. Seriously don’t. I don’t want to eat corn off of a cob, don’t like cornbread, and don’t want my fish battered in cornmeal. To me, it tastes like sand in my food. Gross.
But my husband loves all of those things. So a girl’s gotta make some sacrifices. He had a rough day at work today, so while looking for side dishes to go with our meatloaf, I came across a package of frozen corn kernels. Jackpot! He LOVES creamed corn. After looking at a bunch of recipes and picking ingredients out of each one, this is what I came up with as a Christen original! James absolutely loved it and I have to say….I ate two servings! It was that good!
Approx. 8 oz frozen corn kernels, thawed
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp granulated sugar
1/8 tsp fresh grated black pepper
1/4 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tsp rosemary, chopped
1-2 shakes tumeric (too much gets you that wild yellow color that mine is!)
1 tbsp butter
1/2 cup whole milk
1.5 tsp all-purpose flour
1.5 tsp cornmeal
dash cajun seasonings
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
Heat butter in a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, saute for a minute or so till softened. Add the corn, salt, cream, sugar, pepper, rosemary and tumeric. Stir well.
Whisk together the whole milk with the flour and cornmeal. Add a dash of cajun seasonings. Stir into the corn mixture and cook, stirring until thickened. Remove from heat, add parmesan and stir until melted.
