So raise your hand if you’re ready for Easter? I’m pretty sure I feel prepared to welcome the spiritual side of it. But the egg-dying, basket-stuffing, holiday meal-prepping side of it? Not so much.

Good thing I’ve planned a menu of recipes that are make-ahead and/or require minimal preparation on the big day! This rich, mouthwatering Easy Creamed Corn with Parmesan fits neatly into either of those categories. It whips up in a matter of minutes or, if you prefer, it can even be prepped ahead of time and baked off when it’s time to eat.

Easy Creamed Corn with Parmesan ~ creamy, decadent corn topped with Parmesan and baked until bubbly | FiveHeartHome.comIf you’ve been hanging around Five Heart Home for awhile, you may have noted that I’ve already posted one of my all-time favorite creamy corn side dishes. But that one relies on cream cheese, and as hard as it is for me to fathom, some of you folks out there just don’t care for cream cheese. (Sacrilege!) But y’all deserve a yummy corn recipe, too, so this one today is more along the lines of a traditional creamed corn…with a delicious twist.

And if you haven’t, get thee to a Rudy’s immediately! Anyway, the basis of this recipe actually reminds me of Rudy’s corn…rich, decadent, loaded with real cream, real butter, salt, and sugar. Oh yeah…and corn. It really doesn’t get much simpler than that, friends. But this recipe takes it a step further and tops that creamy corn goodness with a crust of Parmesan cheese, which turns all bubbly and toasty in the oven.

Easy Creamed Corn with Parmesan ~ creamy, decadent corn topped with Parmesan and baked until bubbly | FiveHeartHome.comThis corn is dee-licious, y’all. As in, it takes restraint not to scarf down the whole dish in one sitting, by yourself (hypothetically speaking, of course). This is a newer recipe in my arsenal, but I have to admit that I love it just as much as my cream cheese-laden, Creamy Cheesy Corn Casserole old standby.

And did I mention how quick and easy this recipe comes together? Oh yeah, I put it in the title. But it’s true. It practically makes itself, and that’s exactly what I’m going for on Sunday for Easter. Who am I kidding? I want effortless recipes pretty much every other day of the year as well.

This may not be diet food, but it’s a perfect, comforting accompaniment for your holiday ham, whether it be at Easter or Christmas. This recipe is a sure hit when you’re entertaining guests.  It’s ideal if you feel like splurging on a weeknight. And hey, someone named Rudy claims it’s even good with barbecue. I believe I’m going to have to test out that hypothesis next… ;)

Easy Creamed Corn with Parmesan

Sure to become a new favorite side dish, decadent creamed corn is topped with a salty layer of Parmesan cheese and baked until golden and bubbly.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 32 ounces frozen corn, defrosted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare a 9-by-13-inch (or equivalently sized) baking dish by brushing with some of the melted butter. Sprinkle a bit of the Parmesan cheese on the bottom of the dish in a thin layer, and tilt dish so that the bottom and sides get evenly coated with Parmesan.
  2. Pour cream in a 4-quart saucepan and heat over medium-low until it begins to simmer. Stir in the corn, salt, and sugar until mixture begins to bubble.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk flour into the remaining melted butter. Slowly blend this paste into the corn mixture and stir until thickened.
  4. Pour corn mixture into prepared dish, spread into an even layer, and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.

Tips, Tricks, & Variations

You may substitute whole milk or half-and-half for the cream, though the final dish won't be as rich.

You may prepare this recipe up to the step of pouring the thickened cream and corn mixture into the dish. Then you may cool, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. Bring to room temperature before baking as directed.

  1. My brother-in-law loves creamed corn, but doesn’t like cheese so I don’t know if he would like the parmesan in this, but is sure sounds delicious to me! Thanks for sharing.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      You could totally make this without the Parmesan, Sara, and it would still be delicious! But if you happen to like Parmesan, its salty contrast puts this dish over the top! ;)

  2. This is one of my favorite side dishes, and I love how you added the cheese, I’ve never thought of that before, I’ll have to add it next time! Thanks for the recipe!! Happy Easter to you! :)

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Happy Easter to you as well, Maria! And you should definitely try creamed corn with the Parmesan sometime…it’s a tasty addition! :)
