Dress up frozen corn with this simple and delicious recipe for Skillet Corn, often called Honey Butter Skillet Corn or Skillet Fried Corn because of the sweet honey butter added right to this recipe. With a touch of creaminess added this is truly a recipe to keep.

Corn is a favorite late summer, fall vegetable and although I love Air Frying Corn on the Cob I don’t love plain boring canned or frozen corn on a plate.  I just want a little more. So instead of heating up that canned corn, try Skillet Corn and see how the faces of your family light up with every bite.

This corn recipe is made in a skillet on the stove. In less than 15 minutes you will be enjoying this delicious side dish recipe. With only a few ingredients needed, this recipe is simple.

Honey Butter Skillet Corn

Of course there are so many options of additional ingredients to add for more flavor too. I’ll highlight some of my favorite below.

Shopping list

  • Frozen Sweet Corn, however canned corn will also work too and Fresh Corn cut off the cob is ideal too.
  • Butter, Honey and Cream Cheese – You may or may not have these ingredients on hand
  • Seasoned with Salt and Pepper.

How to make Skillet Corn Recipe

Gather the ingredients and even get a bigger child to help stir. They can’t mess this recipe up. Of course make sure any child in the kitchen is age appropriate and has supervision too.

I like to use a cast iron skillet. It’s a wonderful piece to have in the kitchen if you don’t have one. But any skillet will work.

Melt butter and honey together over medium/high heat and then add frozen corn. Stir all together and saute for 5-8 minutes cooking corn. The corn will let off some moisture which is ideal. You can also put a lid on top and allow the corn to steam but make sure to open it up and stir every minute so nothing burns.

Add softened cream cheese and stir to combine. It will melt right into the corn and create a sauce. Allow to cook through for 3-4 more minutes and then season with salt and pepper.

Serve it right up to the table and enjoy! The sauce will thicken as it cools.

Additional Add-ins

Truly there are so many things you can do, I should make separate recipe posts for each. Some of my favorite are cooking some bacon slices in the skillet first and reserving some of the bacon drippings. Adding crumbled cooked bacon is ah-ma-ZING.

Try adding Green Onions diced into the mixture. One bunch diced is plenty and adds nice flavor.

For a Skillet Mexican Street Corn add cumin, chili powder, Cotija cheese, and lime juice. It’s like eating Elote Corn on the Cob but from the skillet. Of course you will want to eliminate the honey from this recipe when adding these additional add-ins.

Honey Butter Corn

My boys have always called this recipe just like it tastes, Honey Butter Corn. We do love the creamy texture from the cream cheese and sweet honey. Because of how easy this recipe is, we often serve it with weekday dinners as a side dish.

How to Store Honey Butter Corn Recipe

Store leftovers in a sealed container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator. Heat in microwave or on stove over medium heat. I find adding a tablespoon of milk or two helps to thin out the cream cheese.
