Honey Butter Skillet Corn
This creamy sweet honey butter skillet corn is the best easy side dish!
- 24 oz frozen sweet corn
- 4 tablespoons salted butter
- 2 ½ tablespoons honey
- 4 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- Melt butter and honey in a large skillet
- Add the frozen sweet corn and stir over medium heat for 6 - 8 minutes
- Add the cream cheese and cook an additional 4 - 5 minutes, stirring often, until melted and creamy
- Salt and pepper to taste and stir right before serving
The corn will get creamier and thicker the longer it sits, so if it is a little liquid-y, let it sit a few minutes and stir right before serving.
