This stuff is really awesome. You have corn sauteed with a bit of butter and honey, then instead of using cream, we are going to use some yummy cream cheese, and add a bit salt and pepper to top it off. Six simple ingredients, and one awesome side dish. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make side dish essentials: to die for honey/cheesy corn

  • 1
  • 2
    You will need a medium sized skillet to make this recipe.
  • 3
    Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 3 – 4 days; however, since this recipe contains cheese, I would not recommend freezing it.
  • 4
    I love the subtle heat that white pepper delivers; especially, when contrasting that heat with sweet items, like fresh clover honey. If you do not have white pepper, you can always substitute black pepper.
  • 5
    Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  • 6
    Add the butter to a skillet over medium heat, and heat until it stops foaming.
  • 7
    Add the corn and cook, while stirring for about 2 – 3 minutes.
  • 8
    If you are using fresh-off-the-cob corn, then add an additional 5 minutes to the cooking time.
  • 9
    Drizzle in the honey and cook for an additional 1 – 2 minutes.
  • 10
    Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the softened cream cheese.

    Cook for an addition 2 – 3 minutes, and then add some salt and white pepper, to taste.
