Lawry’s Creamed Corn

One of our favorite family restaurants is Five Crown’s in Corona del Mar.  My boys love the creamed corn, and actually… I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t.  They provide the recipe online, but having it at the restaurant is best.


1½ tablespoons butter
1½ tablespoons flour
½ teaspoon salt
1½ cups whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar
3 cups fresh, frozen or canned whole kernel corn
Melt butter in heavy saucepan; add flour and salt, stirring to blend. Slowly add whipping cream, stirring constantly until thickened. Add sugar and corn, heat. For Au Gratin, place corn in a 9 or 10 inch shallow casserole dish; sprinkle with ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese and brown under broiler.
