This recipe is so easy and the end result is a sweet, creamy corn casserole that you won’t be able to stop eating!
Begin with fresh corn. Remove the corn from their husks, rinse and remove the corn silks. It’s okay if you don’t remove them all – I’m not sure that’s even possible! It won’t hurt if there are a few silks hanging out in the end product.
You’ll need a large, deep bowl for cutting the kernels, as well as a smaller bowl, turned upside down, to fit inside the larger bowl. Rest and hold an ear of corn, vertically, on top of the smaller bowl while you slice off the kernels of corn. This will allow your knife room to slice all the way to the bottom of the ear of corn while the kernels fall into the larger bowl. Work your way around each ear of corn, slicing the kernels off. Flip your knife over to the dull side and using a little pressure, scrape the ear of corn, vertically, to release any milky residue left on each ear of corn. Repeat this process for each ear of corn.
Then, you’ll just add some heavy cream, butter, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a baking or casserole dish and bake until done. (I love my Le Creuset casserole dish – clean up is a breeze!)
I like to get a little brown color on the top, but make sure you don’t over-bake it. You don’t want it to be dry.
You’ll be amazed at how sweet the corn tastes! That’s pure fresh corn, no sugar added, that gives it the sweet taste. Oh, the cream helped, too!
