    Wow, such a burst of flavor, even early season corn, we skipped the bacon and was still wonderful. The yield is high, so I will use the leftovers for cornbread.

    Great side recipe. Best with fresh summer corn, but also works well with frozen corn kernels for a warm comfort recipe on cold winter days. Excellent for company.

    the corn turned out okay, it was a lot of work.

    Loved this. I recommend two small changes. First, puree the corn and milk in the blender, not the food processor if yours is small. I tried it in the food processor and made a mess. Second, more corn starch and longer cook time at the end will produce a thicker result.

    This is a good recipe, but not the best. Really enjoyed the crunchy bacon.

    We enjoyed this recipe very much. I used frozen corn in place of the ears of corn. Cooked longer because I wanted a thicker sauce. Next time will use just a bit more cornstarch. The bacon and leeks were fabulous!

    I loved this creamed corn recipe. I love fresh corn on the cob anyway, so this gives me another way to enjoy fresh corn. My husband loved it, too - in fact, he took another helping! When making it, I didn't have leeks on hand, so I used shallots instead. I also added a little more cornstarch to make it thicker, but other than that, I made it as written. One reviewer said it was a lot of work, but I definitely disagree. It wasn't one you could put together in 5 minutes, but it certainly wasn't a lot of work - and it was so worth it! Delicious!

    We just love this recipe! Try frozen corn for quick prep time!! I also used chopped onion in place of leek. Delicious!!
