This Monterey Jack Creamed Corn is super easy to prepare delicious and cheesy.
Monterey Jack Creamed Corn includes frozen or fresh corn, butter, onion, heavy cream, black pepper, sugar, garlic, Monterey Jack Cheese, and Colby Jack Cheese.
Use Fresh or Frozen Corn When Making Monterey Jack Creamed Corn
When I cannot get fresh corn, I love preparing this Corn from frozen cut corn. It is similar, but I add little-granulated garlic, Monterey Jack cheese, and Colby Jack cheese. The garlic and cheese make this dish extra creamy, tasty and delicious. Another great benefit of preparing Monterey Jack Creamed Corn is that it is easy to prepare. No corn shucking is required!
I grew up shucking corn and eating delicious fried corn. Nothing is better than fresh-cut corn, but I have found an excellent way to prepare frozen cut corn. This Corn also disappears in my house just as fast as fresh fried corn. Fried corn is made by cutting fresh corn off the cobb. You cook 3 or 4 pieces of bacon hard and then remove them from the pan. Add the sweet corn to the skillet with the bacon grease. Next, add some fresh pepper, a pinch of salt, and a pinch or two of sugar. I add a splash of heavy cream and some butter. Making fried corn inspired me to create a similar recipe using frozen corn. The main difference is cheese. I added a lot of cheese with my frozen corn to make it ooey-gooey. Cheese makes everything better!
