Creamed Corn with Bacon and Leeks


Nothing says comfort food like Creamed Corn with Bacon and Leeks. Corn is starting to come into season now, and hopefully you can find it fresh and sweet and serve steamed – as is – or with a little salt and butter! This is a fantastic recipe for leftover steamed corn. Cut kernels off the cob and cook with some milk, leeks and bacon. Delish!
