  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey, adjust depending on desired sweetness
  • 16 ounces frozen corn, use a combo of white and yellow corn for nice color variety
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper


  • In a 10-inch skillet over medium heat, melt together butter and honey, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the frozen corn to the skillet and cook, occasionally stirring until heated through, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the cream cheese, salt, and pepper and stir over medium heat until the cream cheese has melted completely and the sauce is evenly combined.
  • Remove from the heat; season with additional salt and pepper as needed.
  • Serve immediately.


  • I love the color variety using white and sweet yellow corn. Sometimes you can find a combo bag. You can also simply use half a bag of yellow and half a bag of white corn.
  • This corn dish does not make a large quantity. I would recommend doubling it for more than just four people eating this as a small portion side dish.
  • This is a creamy, buttery, and sweet corn side dish. The salt and pepper add a savory touch to this honey-sweetened corn. For a less sweet dish, use just 1 tablespoon of honey.
