Are you a side dish connoisseur? Do you find yourself going to fancy burger places just to order the fries? Is your favorite page on a restaurant menu the “side dishes” page? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, today’s post is just for you.

This post is written specifically for any of us that have ever asked the waiter, “So what comes with that?” It is the crème de la crème of all side dishes. The big daddy of everything delicious, warm, and hearty. Today, we make creamed corn. Do not be fooled by it’s common name though. Throw whatever you knew or thought you knew about creamed corn out the door. Why, you ask? Because this is no ordinary creamed corn. Using our delicious freeze dried corn, adding our awesome freeze dried onions, and mixing in our aromatic Bacon Flavored TVP, we’ve come up with a creamed corn that tops even the tastiest side dishes. Get your taste buds ready, it’s time to make Bacon Flavored Creamed Corn!

7 cups Honeyville Freeze Dried Corn
1 cup Honeyville Freeze Dried Onion
1 clove Garlic, minced
8 oz Cream Cheese
1 cup Heavy Cream
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 cup Honeyville Bacon Flavored TVP

Warm up a large skillet on your stove top.

While skillet is warming, re-hydrate your corn by placing it in a large mixing bowl with 1-1 1/2 cups of water. Stir until corn is moist but not soggy.

Re-hydrate onions and place on the skillet, along with your minced garlic and 1 tbsp of Olive Oil, and stir until onion is lightly browned.

Add corn and stir in completely. Continue to stir until corn is soft and tender.

Turn to low heat and cut in cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, salt, and black pepper, and stir continually until cream cheese has completely melted.

Add bacon flavored TVP and stir until completely combined. Remove from heat and serve.

From the first bite, you’ll agree, this is not your Grandma’s creamed corn! The rich taste of the smokey, bacon flavored TVP runs through this dish like charging bulls through the streets of Spain. The onion and garlic add the perfect amount of flavor without overpowering the dish, and the corn gives it the perfect sweet, savory blend you’ve been looking for. The cream cheese, combined with the heavy cream, gives this dish the perfect amount of creamy, dreamy goodness, while still creating a hearty, delicious side!

Calling all side dish connoisseurs, you’re new favorite dish has arrived!
