Seeking creamed corn recipe

II recently saw a recipe, maybe on TV or in a magazine, for creamed corn. I don't remember where.

The technique used few ingredients, relying heavily on the corn milk scraped from the cobs. It probably contained copious amounts of butter, but not much else.

Anybody remember this or have a similar recipe?

    1. I am going to have to make and try creamed corn. I hated it as a kid but the only kind I ever had was the Del Monte canned stuff. Using fresh corn and cream would make quite a difference I suspect.

      Oops... just followed that link and at least Paula Deens didn't have any cream.

      1. I fry some bacon, then take it out of the pan, leaving the fat (not too much) behind. Slice corn from the cob and add to pan. Using the back of your knife, scrape the "cream" from the cob into the pan. Cook to heat through. If it seems too dry, add a bit of cream (usually not necessary with really fresh corn.) You could use butter, instead of bacon, but I like the flavor, and crumble the cooked bacon over the creamed corn.

        1. I saw a recipe for this on Mark Bittman's minimalist blog.
