What pairs well with creamed corn?

Creamed corn is a classic side dish, perfect for any family meal or potluck. It has a warm, creamy texture will please even the pickiest of eaters.

Choosing a complementary dish that makes the most of its delicate flavors is best to make creamed corn stand out and shine as part of a delicious meal.

For example, with their robust spices and bright citrus notes, a savory dish like roasted pork chops works perfectly alongside creamed corn.

Additionally, if you’re looking for something lighter than roasted pork chops yet still complementary to your creamed corn side dish, consider sautéed shrimp with garlic butter – the combination of briny shrimp with the sweetness of cream-style corn will be irresistible!

How do you store leftover creamed corn?

Storing leftovers correctly can help you ensure that you waste fewer groceries and get more out of your shopping trips.

To store leftover creamed corn, first, let it cool down entirely before portioning it into individual containers.

When using glass or metal containers, leave some space at the top for any expansion the corn might experience. Place the containers in the fridge and eat within 2 days.

With these steps, you can rest assured that unwanted food waste will be minimized, and your leftovers will stay good for longer!

Creamed Corn Recipe

Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 11 minutes

This Creamed Corn Recipe is perfect for sharing with family and friends. An easy side dish!


  • 2 regular size packages of frozen super sweet corn
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter (you can use margarine, but butter hits the spot better in the recipe)
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 packages of cream cheese
  • 4 tbsp of heavy cream (you can use other cream or milk if you must, but heavy cream rocks this!)


  1. All you do is put all of this in a saucepan together (a large saucepan) on medium heat and cover.  You will need to stir often so the sugar gets dissolved and the mixture doesn’t burn to the bottom of the saucepan. 


You can make this a few hours ahead and then transfer it to a slow cooker to keep it warm.  It will last for hours as long as it remains a little heated.  The leftovers (if you even have any) are just as delicious as the first time.
