Warning: Fattening Goodness Ahead!

A few months ago, when visiting Babe's Chicken House for the first time, I fell IN LOVE with creamed corn. I think I'd only had the canned kind before that and was always super grossed out by it. So, when Alli gave us this recipe, I couldn't wait to try it...and crossed my fingers that it would taste similar to the yummy goodness from Babe's. ...To my delight {and to my figure's dismay} it tasted just like it! I seriously could eat JUST this for dinner! It is SOOO good! So, enjoy...and let me know if you ever want to go to Babe's!

Creamed Corn
1 lb. frozen kernel corn
12 oz. whipping cream
1 1/2 T melted butter
1 1/2 T four
1/2 t. salt
2 T sugar
pinch white pepper
3 T parmesan cheese
Combine corn, cream, salt, sugar and white pepper in a pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. In separate pot, make a roux from butter and flour. Add to corn. Mix well and remove from heat.
Transfer corn mixture to baking dish. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and brown under broiler. Serves 6.

Oh, yes! We will be having this for dinner. And if I gain 10 lbs. I'll be so mad! But, not mad enough to not eat it again.

Ooooh, I just read the tilapia tostada recipe and my mouth is watering. My family is going to be so happy that I'm reading your blog!

I made this tonight and both my fiancee and myself loved it. She is from Aubrey so she has been to Babe's in Sanger. She said mine tasted a little different, but it was just as good, if not better. Thanks for a new addition to our recipe book.
