We are covering all the southern Thanksgiving side this year and you know cream corn has to be on the list!

I am pretty sure my husband can eat his body weight in this stuff. He always says that corn is his favorite “vegetable”. ?

It doesn’t matter what form the corn comes in – on the cob, cheesy corn casserole, cream corn, or just plain straight from the can – HE LOVES IT!

Cute story – the very first time Justin cooked for me when we were dating he made me grilled chicken, black beans, and canned corn (because it is one of his favs). And it was so sweet.

This southern-style dish is rich and creamy with hints of parmesan and nutmeg. It’s thick and luscious and omg you’re going to love it!
