Southern Style Skillet Corn is a recipe I’ve been making since my husband I married. I’ve memorized the recipe so I can’t tell you where I found it. We both like how sweet and creamy the corn is. It’s a great side dish for pork, bar-b-que, chicken wings, or well just about anything that you’d enjoy with corn on the cob.
I haven’t shared a side dish with y’all in a few weeks so I thought that today I would share one of our favorites. My hubby loves when I make this dish. In fact he has been known to request it. Of course I’m only too happy to make it.
In the summer this recipe is great to make with fresh corn cut off the cob. When there isn’t fresh corn available I make it with frozen corn kernels. No need to defrost them first just drop them in the skillet still frozen.
This is a really easy side dish. Begin by combining butter, water, sugar and corn over medium heat. Cover and simmer for fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally.
While the corn is simmering; whisk together milk and flour in a small bowl until smooth.
At the end of fifteen minutes turn heat to low and pour milk and flour mixture over the corn and stir constantly for five minutes. The corn should be creamy and slightly thickened.
