Recipe Bourbon Creamed Corn. A super picnic or holiday side dish, this creamy corn is festive and quite tasty.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup chopped shallots (3 to 4 large)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 3 cups corn kernels, cut from 4 to 5 medium ears
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 1/4 cups chopped scallions
  • salt and pepper
  • paprika to serve

Directions

  1. 1. Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium high heat. Add the shallots and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes.
  2. 2. Add the bell pepper and sauté for 1 minute.
  3. 3. Add the corn kernels and sauté until almost tender, about 2 minutes.
  4. 4. Add 1/3 cup of cream and the bourbon and simmer the sauce, stirring often, until it thickly coats the corn, about 2 minutes.
  5. 5. Add the remaining 1/3 cup cream and 1 cup scallions, and simmer the mixture until the sauce thickens enough to coat the corn kernels, about 2 minutes longer.
  6. 6. Season the creamed corn to taste with salt and pepper, then transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup scallions. Sprinkle with paprika for color, and serve.
