Homemade Creamed Corn is beyond delicious, fresh and decadent. The smooth creamy sauce engulfing the corn kernels sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, provides a perfect balance of soft, crunchy that melts in your mouth. This recipe is an inspiration from dining at a beautiful 1989 establishment called, Summit House Restaurant in Fullerton, California. This restaurant has magnificent décor bringing you back into the days of dining at an English Inn.
Summit House Restaurant’s Classic Creamed Corn Au Gratin is to die for! Whether or not you can make it to their specs or even during their promotional periods, you will have a chance to make your creamed corn in your comfy home!!
Let’s get started on this oh so delicious recipe! Serve this dish at your holiday gathering and everyone will want you to bring back this dish every year!! This is a very easy recipe to make so let’s get started!!
Serves: 6 servings
Bake Time: 20 minutes @ 350º F
- 12oz Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 lb. Frozen Kernal Corn
- 1 ½ T. Melted Butter
- 1 ½ T. Flour
- 2 T. Sugar
- Pinch White Pepper (to taste)
- Pinch of Salt (to taste)
- 3 T. Parmesan Cheese (optional)
In a pot, combine frozen corn, cream, salt, sugar and white pepper. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Make a roux from butter and flour. (To achieve the roux, I had two very small bowls each holding the flour and butter. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a small pot and add the flour. Make sure to pop out all the flour clumps.)
Add the roux into the corn mixture and remove from the stove.
Top your corn mixture with Parmesan Cheese (optional).
Pour in the mixture to an oven-safe or casserole dish to bake. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Rotate the dish in the 10 minute mark to assure that the heat is evenly distributed throughout the dish. If you have a broiler, place the dish in the broiler to achieve a browned top layer of corn.
Mind you, this dish is super good, though this recipe serves 6, I would say that serving is on the small side. Realistically, I would say that it serves 4 because it is THAT GOOD and believe me, there will be seconds going back to this dish. If you are serving this dish for more than 2 people, be sure to double if not triple this recipe!
