We love creamed corn, do you? I buy it in the can quite often, typically mixing one can of creamed with one regular can of corn. This recipe for homemade was heavenly, and I can’t see that I will be purchasing it anymore. Not when I can enjoy it this way!
Many years ago, when my oldest kids were little, I used to be a Creative Memories consultant. Do you remember Creative Memories? It was a home based scrapbooking business. I would go to people’s homes and they would have all of their friends over, they brought photos and together we would create a scrapbook page. I had events at my home and at local churches where women would come and work all day long on their scrapbooks. It was a ball! I also had the opportunity to go to retreats with other consultants. Every time I hear the word “can of corn” I think of one of these retreats.
This gal was laughing and telling us how as she gets older she forgets things quicker. Can you relate? I sure can!
She went on to say that as a mom her head was constantly swimming with all that she had to do. She would constantly forget why she went to the basement by the time she got to the bottom of the stairs. She had her canned goods all stashed away down there, and every time she forgot she would just bring up a can of corn, so the trip wasn’t a total waste! The endless cans of corn in her kitchen were just a daily reminder to her that she was losing her mind! 😉
So, pin this recipe, print it off, do whatever you have to do. Just don’t FORGET to try it!
It’s a keeper!

I think this would be a great addition to Thanksgiving dinner! Of course my FAVORITE part of Thanksgiving, the stuffing!
This is my grandmother’s Sausage & Sage Dressing that is our family’s favorite part of Thanksgiving!
I cannot wait to try this recipe using fresh corn on the cob! You could also use frozen (thawed) corn.
