Thanksgiving isn’t my absolute favorite holiday, because I am not a fan of the food. I have found a recipe to spice up the ‘typical side of corn’, into a dish everyone will want on their plates. If you are trying to think of something impressive to bring to your boyfriend’s family’s thanksgiving or just want a yummy side for your own friendsgiving, this is the easiest recipe there is!
- 2 bags of Corn; I used frozen corn that you can steam in the microwave. I normally wouldn’t suggest frozen or canned vegetables but it is not realistic to shuck enough corn off of the cob to make this recipe.
- 1 8oz brick of cream cheese (I used “1/2” the fat to try to feel better about the amount of dairy I was cooking)
- 1 small bottle of milk (I used skim but I also don’t drink milk so I just bought a small bottle for this recipe)
- Parmesan shredded cheese
- Shredded cheddar cheese mix (you can use whatever cheese you would like)
- Butter (optional for cooking the garlic, you can use olive oil as well)
- Fresh garlic (minced)
- Spices: Pink Himalayan salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, parsley
- Preheat the oven to 350°. Steam cook desired amount of corn. While the corn is cooking, melt desired amount of butter and cook the garlic. Once the garlic is starting to brown, add in the brick of cream cheese. Melt the cream cheese down while mixing in a small amount of milk until it is liquified.
- Once your cream is ready, add corn and a scallions and continue to stir ingredients. This is when you would add desired spices.
- After stirring all of the ingredients and spices, fill a baking bowl. Layer the top of the corn with both types of cheese.
- If you are bringing this dish to another location, cover the bowl and take it with you before baking. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until you see the cheese has melted completely. Serve immediately and enjoy!
