This Cream Cheese Corn Recipe is loaded with all sorts of goodies, like Ranch mix, bacon, cheddar cheese and green onions. All made in one skillet, it is an easy side dish that is perfect for just about any occasion.
I’ve written it before on this blog, I have a serious weak spot for tasty side dishes. Often times, I love them more than the main dish! So, it isn’t a surprise that we’ve focused on some awesome side dishes on Bubba Pie. I love this Creamed Corn Recipe and our Green Bean Casserole is seriously addictive! For Easter this year, I’m going to bring these Cheesy Potatoes with Ham for my family. I can’t wait!
We’ve found this awesome recipe for Skillet Loaded Cream Cheese Corn and the coolest thing about it is that not only will it work as a fantastic side dish, it could also serve as a dip too!
Loaded Cream Cheese Corn Recipe
Cream Cheese Corn should not be confused with Creamed Corn. While both have dairy added to them (creamed corn has heavy cream or half and half and this recipe has Milk), this recipe will come out a little thicker. Also, Creamed Corn often has sugar added to it and this Cream Cheese Corn isn’t nearly as sweet, but much more savory.
What Ingredients Will I Need?
- Whole Kernel Corn
- Cream Cheese
- Ranch Mix
- Bacon (crumbled)
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese

- Green Onions
Can You Use Frozen Corn For This Recipe?
Yep! You sure can! And if you do this, you won’t need to worry about draining it beforehand. We almost always have a bag of frozen corn in our freezer, so this works well for us!
Other Tips and Notes For Cream Cheese Corn Recipe
