One Pot Gouda and Cream Cheese Corn Ingredients

Use fresh corn when corn is in season or frozen if it’s not peak season or if you just prefer to. Gouda cheese and cream cheese also go into the creamed corn recipe, along with heavy cream, butter, garlic, and herbs.

Monterey Jack, Munster, edam, gruyere, Havarti, or mild cheddar cheddar could replace the gouda in the recipe. A handful of parmesan cheese would also be good. Pretty much any cheese goes. And I recommend using full-fat cream cheese for the richest flavour.

Another option is to make corn au gratin by topping it with handfuls of shredded cheese and baking it in the oven until the cheese on top is golden brown.

One Pot Gouda and Cream Cheese Corn FAQs

Can you make this cream cheese corn side dish recipe ahead?

You can make a homemade cream corn recipe up to three days in advance, stored in an airtight conteiner. You can also freeze it and that’s handy if you’re making a big batch and have leftovers.

What other spices would work in homemade creamed corn?

There are lots of different cream corn recipes, all with their own spices and seasonings. Some people enjoy using fresh and/or dried herbs, while there are home cooks that prefer to forego the herbs in flavour of spices like chilli powder or cayenne pepper. A pinch of chipotle powder would add a smoky undertone. If you want a really south of the border inspired flavour, you might want to try this Mexican street corn another time.
