Creamed corn finds its origins in the American Midwest before becoming popular in the rest of the country.
My daughter made this recipe for her family. She said her family could have made a whole meal just from the corn alone! It was plate licking good! She found some recipes variations that incorporate cream cheese as a cheaters’ method of making cream corn, but decided that making the white sauce would be a more traditional and flavorful way to go.
