It might sound crazy but I love recipes and how they evolve, change and get customized over the years and in different regions. If you are in the midwest during corn season fresh creamed corn is typically made with heavy cream and butter.

However, if you are enjoying it in the south, creamed corn is often more bacon based in its sauce and of course, topped with plenty of bacon as well.

Some recipes will even have you place some of the corn in the blender and cream it so to speak before adding it to the remaining whole corn. I admit, if using fresh corn I might be more tempted to try that. Sticking with frozen corn a sauce of cream, milk, butter, and flour works best.
