Country Corn

Corn is one vegetable that I can get everyone in the house to eat, which means that I need to come up with different variations of it to keep it interesting.  We love corn on the cob, but sometimes we like to keep our hands clean so I cut it off the cob.  I have a great recipe for Creamed Corn this one is different because it doesn't call for any cream but it still thickens to become one of the best comfort foods that I make.

  • 3 Large Ears of Corn (cooked and cut off the cob)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Flour
  • 1 teaspoon of Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pepper
  • 3/4 Cup of Water
  • A Couple Dashes of Onion Powder
Combine flour, sugar, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.  Whisk in water.  Melt butter in skillet.  Add in corn and flour/water mixture.  Stir.  Let mixture simmer for about 30 minutes stirring occasionally.  Mixture will thicken as it cooks creating a creamy side dish everyone will love!

I served this with Key Lime BBQ Chicken and Rice
