I honestly thought the same thing when I found the recipe on pinterest. BUT I'm a sucker for cream cheese and it looked so stinkin easy that I had to try it.
I really don't know what the typical "creamed corn" is made of... But whatever it is, this isn't it. This was cheesy. Kind of zingy.
"Creamed" is not the word I would choose to describe it.
I ended up eating the whole pan.
Cream Cheese Corn
1 lb of sweet corn
4 oz cream cheese
1 tbsp butter
Red pepper flakes (to taste)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add corn and cream cheese and stir until completely melted and combined. Season with salt pepper and red pepper flakes
