The holiday season is just around the corner and that means you’ll probably either be hosting or attending at least a few celebratory shindigs. Need a quick dish to add to the meal that takes less than thirty minutes to whip up? Then look no further than this creamy, sweet and savory side.
For a quick and easy side dish, try this fun and flavorful twist on Southern creamed corn. To cut the cook time, I used frozen corn and cornstarch. Heavy cream or half-and-half gives it the trademark creaminess, and using cornstarch as a shortcut helps the dish to thicken up in a flash rather than simmering it for ages. Using cornstarch instead of flour as a thickener also means this dish is gluten-free so any wheat-free guests will be pleased.
Now, it’s great as-is, but to give this creamed corn a savory addition to the sweet corn flavor, add in some Stubb’s Spicy Bar-B-Q Sauce. This way, you’ll get a sweet and savory combination of flavors that’s sure to surprise and delight your dinner guests.
This easy creamed corn recipe cooks up in a flash while everything else you may be making finishes cooking. Make it right before serving or prep it ahead of time and simply reheat it in the microwave or on the stove top.
