Special Creamed Corn

This corn has earned a permanent place on our special-occasion menus. While my whole family loves it, my son would be especially disappointed if I forgot to include our corn dish. —Deb Hauptmann, Mohnton, Pennsylvania

    I could have eaten this as the full meal and dessert and still want more.

    This corn was fantastic! I love creamed corn and have tried many recipes through the years. This one the whole family loved! It will be on our Thanksgiving menu this year!

    This recipe was every bit as wonderful as the one that has become popular in exclusive restaurants recently. Note to those reviewers who want to remove all sugar and make it a savory: Then that is another recipe entirely. Just make something else. If executed correctly, this recipe is great just the way it is.

    I've been experimenting with a lot of TOH recipes during the covid19 pandemic. I'm planning to make my own version of this one for Thanksgiving dinner but will leave out the sugar. (Otherwise my picky, savory-loving family wouldn't eat it.) I might add some blanched and peeled pearl onions.

    This was delicious! My only (very tiny) complaint is that it was thicker than I expected. That may have been because I used whole milk. I cut this recipe in half for my husband and I. I followed the suggestion of some of the other reviewers that this was a tad too sweet and cut back the sugar even further (to about 1 tbsp). I think it could have used just a tad more than that, so I may just do the recipe as written next time. I really loved the parmesan on top, it went perfectly with the sweetness of the corn. I'll definitely make this again!

    I made this for an outdoor BBQ. Everyone loved it! I reduced the sugar to two tablespoons, increased the pepper to a 1/4 teaspoon and used two bags of frozen corn which equals about 7 cups. I will make this again.

    Made this for Thanksgiving but decided to use fresh corn off the cob... there was none left... everyone enjoyed it.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! Bought the Taste of Home Holiday cookbook a few years ago and flipped through and found this. I've made it for each family gathering since. @DDarby1290 (and anyone else interested), I always heat this up ahead of time, then broil with cheese on top when ready or when the oven is available. :)
