Basic Creamed Corn Recipe

Step 1

Melt butter, stir in flour. Add milk slowly, stirring with whisk until completely blended, thickened and gently bubbling. Add kernels and simmer about 3 minutes. Season with salt and white pepper.

Step 2

Leftover Creamed Corn; pureed in blender or food processor, makes a quick sauce for shrimp, scallops or crab. Mix cooked seafood into corn sauce, simmer gently and spoon over a toasted English muffin.

Step 3

Although any variety of fresh corn will do, white, thin-skinned kernels make a superb creamed vegetable dish.
