Why We Love This Creamed Corn with Bacon Recipe

Thanksgiving this week and Christmas next month (and not to mention Easter next year) would be incomplete without this lovely and tasty dish gracing your holiday table.

  • Creamy. This gluten free creamed corn is made extra creamy with mascarpone cheese and extra savory with bacon crumbles.
  • Flavorful. It has a flavor combo that is a little bit sweet and a little bit salty. It pairs perfectly with everything!
  • Gluten-Free. In my opinion, the key to the best creamed corn is starting with a roux… and to do that while keeping this recipe gluten-free and delicious is a feat!

Variations on Gluten Free Creamed Corn

You can modify this recipe by adding different kinds of cheeses, like asiago or pecorino. In place of the mascarpone, try cream cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta, or sour cream. For a bit of extra color, add some chopped green onions or chives!

How to Store and Reheat

Store leftover creamed corn with bacon tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in a 350°F oven for 20-30 minutes, or until warmed through. I do not recommend freezing this creamed corn.

Serving Suggestions

This creamed corn with bacon pairs so well with Christmas ham or Thanksgiving turkey. It’s a little sweet, a little savory, and a whole lot delicious!
