How to Make World's Best Cream Corn

  • 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Spread corn on a large pan and roast in preheated oven 10 minutes to warm it. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • 3In a medium saucepan, combine whipping cream, kosher salt, cayenne and white pepper and bring to a simmer.

    In a blender, combine half & half, sugar, cornstarch, and half the corn and puree until smooth.

    Add corn mixture from blender to simmering cream mixture. Continue to cook 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 4In a large saute pan, over medium heat, combine butter, leek, poblanos and bacon and cook 5 minutes, or until bacon is cooked through.
    Add remaining corn, then add sauce from medium saucepan and stir to combine.
