Tips for Creamed Corn
- If you like that slightly pureed cream corn just use an emulsion blender to blitz it up a bit before you add in the green onions and bacon.
- During summer months feel free to use fresh corn in this recipe when you’ve got some around to use up.
- You can cook bacon in the microwave between layers of paper towels for simplicity. Just layer a few paper towels on a plate, top with the bacon in a single layer, top with a few more paper towels then cook on high until crisp (it usually takes about 4 minutes or so but varies based on the microwave wattage and thickness of the bacon).
