Christmas Creamed Corn
I poster a creamed corn a few years ago but this one is a little different. A little richer and a little more in the Christmassy decor. This dish would look well on the decorated Christmas dinner table. I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas.
¼ cup unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1½ ( 8-ounce ) packages cream cheese, cubed
2/3 cup whole milk
4 cups yellow corn kernels

Place a 12" dutch oven over 9 charcoals and place the butter in oven. Let melt and then add garlic; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add cream cheese and milt whisking until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in corn, chilies, pimientos, salt and pepper until well combined. Cover with lid with 11 to 12 charcoals on top and bake 6 to 8 minutes or until nice and bubbly. Garnish with green onions and serve in the Dutch oven.
