YUMMY is not a good enough word for what this recipe is. My mom, sister and I have been making this recipe for years! Also known by the name "Corn-Corn", it is a very appropriate family recipe, considering my maiden name actually is "Corn"!

  • 2 lb
    bag of frozen corn (do not use canned - too much water!)
  • 8 oz
    cream cheese
  • 1 stick
  • ·
    salt/pepper to taste

How to Make Special Corn


  1. Set out the cream cheese to soften while boiling the corn (it will melt and blend in quicker if softened first).

    Put corn in a pot, cover with water, then bring to a rolling boil on the stove. Let boil until cooked through. Add salt/pepper during this phase.

    When corn has heated all the way through, drain it well in a colander.

    Return the drained corn to the pot (reduce heat to medium), and add the cream cheese and butter. Stir until cream cheese and butter are thoroughly melted and mixed through the corn. Creates a thick, creamy sauce.

    You can double or triple the recipe as needed - very easy to do. Great side dish to take to any potluck type event!
