  • 24 oz frozen corn 1 lb
  • 12 oz whipping cream
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon flour use cup-4-cup for gluten free creamed corn
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoon sugar
  • pinch of white pepper or fresh cracked pepper will work too!
  • 4 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese add more as desired.
  • 4 strips bacon


  • Cut your baon strips into small pieces and fry in large fry or saute pan (that has a lid). Remove from pan and leave about 1-2 tbs of bacon grease, disgarding any extra.
  • In the same pan Make a roux, Melt butter, whisk in flour and let bubble for 1-2 minutes.
  • Slowly whisk in cream, salt, sugar, and white pepper in a pot and bring to a boil. Stir in corn, 2 tbs parmesan cheese and half the bacon. Stirring constantly so it doesnt boil.
  • turn to Low and simmer 5 minutes.
  • Transfer corn to a casserole dish, Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bacon brown under a boiler. only a minute or 2.



If you dont like bacon or dont want to add it just omit from the recipe. Start by making your roux. 
I usually double or triple this depending on how many people, but it always goes and even makes great left overs.
