I just realized I’ve never shared my Simple Cream Cheese Corn recipe here. As such, I’m terribly afraid that you’ll try this recipe and wag your finger at me. “Laura!!” you’ll exclaim. “This corn is incredible! Where has this recipe been my whole life? Why have you not shared it with us before today? You’ve been blogging and sharing recipes for years and years!! And you wait until today to finally disclose this?”
I hang my head in shame. I have no excuses. There are no words I can say to explain this away. I have withheld one of the best recipes in the world, and if I could go back in time and erase this mistake, I most certainly would.
Please forgive me and know that I’ll never do it again. All of my tried and true, very best recipes are yours to be had. I’ll never not share one again. Except for when I do. After all, how am I to know what I am forgetting to remember?
Rest assured, as soon as I remember what I have forgotten, you’ll be the first to know.
This Simple Cream Cheese Corn is my go-to recipe to serve when hosting guests. Why? Because it makes a “fancy” dish without any effort. Steam your corn, add the beautiful cream cheese and butter, serve it to your guests, watch them pass out.
Oh, did I forget to tell you that part? (Seems I’m extra forgetful these days.) Your guests might pass out when they eat this. It can’t be helped. The corn tastes too amazing. The creaminess and the buttery goodness mixed with the sweetness of the corn is just too much for most people to handle. They cry tears of joy while eating it. They think you’re a rock star for cooking it. They go back for seconds and thirds. You’ve changed their lives.
All this, and somehow I forgot to share the recipe until now. I have nothing to say for myself.

This is just like a dish I make in the crock pot! Just throw frozen corn in with the other ingredients, plus a bit of garlic powder and black pepper and heat. It’s perfect for church meals or get togethers, and is always well received. Plus, the color is lovely and it goes with many kinds of main dishes. Thanks!
I was just talking to my husband about making cream corn. Perfect! Now to add to my meal of herb & butter roasted chicken, fresh string beans, and potatoes. Can’t forget the fresh salad greens with strawberries, apples and sun seeds. Mmmm – must go get things ready!
This looks delicious! I make a similar Jalapeno Corn Pudding, but it’s too spicy for my kids to enjoy. This looks like a good compromise that we would all enjoy. Thanks for sharing!
I make it in a little crockpot too, and I throw in some diced green pepper! Yum!
This was delicious! I used the amount of corn the recipe called for but halved the butter and cream cheese. I think there was plenty of creaminess that way and made for a very yummy side dish. Thanks for sharing!
Has anyone tried this recipe with canned corn and made it in a crock pot? I am trying to decide if I need to drain the corn or just put a little of the liquid from the can. Thanks for any input.

Do you use the tube corn that is frozen solid or the frozen corn with loose kernels?
I use frozen corn with loose kernels. :)
