Southern Style Cream Corn

Print Friendly and PDF

I love cream corn.  I can't lie, I even love it out of a can. We ate a lot of that growing up.  This one is from scratch.  It's got the savory bacon flavor and the sweet corn freshness that balances it out. And the cream. Oh the heavenly cream!


  • Corn: 4-6 cups (depending on preference), you can use fresh and cut it off the ear, use can if thats all you can find, or frozen

  • 1 cup Onions diced 

  • 4 tbsp bacon grease

  • 1/4 cup flour

  • 2 cup heavy cream

  • 3 cups milk

  • 1/4 cup cooked bacon 

  • 2 tbsp slap ya mama Cajun seasoning (if you’re not used to spice start with 1/2 tbsp and work your way up)


  • On medium high heat start to cook down the bacon, I use about 4-6 pieces

  • Put the onions in the hot grease

  • Sauté down the onions until translucent

  • Pour the flour on top and make a light roux, don't let it brown

  • Slowly add the milk while whisking

  • Slowly add the heavy cream while whisking

  • Add the corn  

  • Add slap ya mama, if you do not have this spice add salt and pepper to taste
