Creamed Corn

Are you ready to take your grill game to the next level with Smokin’ and Grillin’ with AB? Today, we’re bringing you a mouthwatering recipe straight from the grill that will have your taste buds dancing with delight: Smoky Creamed Corn.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1–½ tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Instructions

1. Preheat the Grill:

Before you start cooking, fire up your grill to medium-high heat, around 375°F to 400°F (190°C to 200°C). Make sure it’s nice and hot for that perfect smoky flavor.

2. Grill the Corn:

Place the thawed corn directly on the preheated grill. Let it cook, turning occasionally, until it’s slightly charred and heated through, about 8-10 minutes. This step adds that irresistible smoky flavor that will elevate your creamed corn to a whole new level.

3. Make the Cream Sauce:

While the corn is grilling, it’s time to whip up the creamy sauce. In a saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over medium heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour and cook for about 1-2 minutes until it’s lightly golden and fragrant.

4. Add the Milk and Cream:

Slowly pour in the milk and heavy cream, whisking continuously to avoid any lumps. Cook the mixture until it thickens slightly, about 3-4 minutes. This creamy base will be the perfect canvas for our smoky grilled corn.

5. Season the Sauce:

Now it’s time to add some flavor! Stir in the kosher salt, black pepper, granulated sugar, cayenne pepper, and ground nutmeg. Don’t be afraid to adjust the seasonings to your taste preferences.

6. Combine with Corn:

Once the sauce is seasoned to perfection, add the grilled corn to the mix. Stir everything together in a bowl until the corn is well coated in the creamy sauce. Let it simmer for an additional 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

7. Serve and Enjoy:

Transfer your smoky grilled creamed corn to a serving dish and garnish with a sprinkle of black pepper for an extra kick. Serve it hot alongside your favorite grilled meats for a meal that’s sure to impress.
