Total: 15 minutes

Ingredients 

  • 24 oz frozen sweet corn
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 ½ tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper

Instructions 

  • Melt butter and honey in a large skillet

  • Add the cream cheese and cook an additional 4 – 5 minutes, stirring often, until melted and creamy

Notes

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.

  1. I have made this recipe twice now. Used fresh super sweet corn I cut off the cob and milk I scraped out the second time. Used less butter and less honey because well corn is already super sweet. I also only used 2 tablespoons of cream cheese. Wow I recommend going fresh.
