Homemade Creamed Corn is better than anything you could ever buy in the can.
Even Eddie ate it up with enthusiasm (he's one of our picky ones).
Creamed Corn with Bacon
Fresh corn cut off the cob of 8 Ears of Corn (about 5 cups of Corn)
2 Tablespoons Butter (any bacon works well... we used uncured turkey bacon and it was great)
3 Slices of Bacon
1/3 cup chopped onion (one small onion)
1 Tablespoon Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Cup Half and Half
1/2 Cup Cold Water
Salt and pepper
In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain saving about 1 tablespoon of grease. Cool, crumble and set aside. to the bacon grease, add the butter and onions; sauté until tender. Add the corn; saute until corn is lightly cooked. Add the flour and mix well. Now stir in the sugar, half and half and water. Stir as it thickens. Add crumbled bacon; reserving about a tablespoon to garnish on the top. Add salt and pepper to taste and pour into serving dish. Garnish with remaining bacon.
