The Best Dip You'll Ever Have
Normally, creamed corn is served as a side. But I think it can make a delicious dip, baked with a bit of cheese on top. I was right. And because I can’t help myself, I added kimchi. Classic move by me. The addition of the bacon gives the dip a smoky, porky flavor. It’s that grilled corn that’s covered in butter and cream cheese. Yes, cream cheese. So Uhmerican. Take a delicious vegetable and down it in cheese. I’m in.

  • How to make a dip. Kimchi Bacon Creamed Corn - Step 1
    Step 1

    Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Grill the corn until just charred, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Step 2

    Once the cobs are cool enough, cut the kernels off. Using the back of your knife, scrape down the cob to release all of the starchy corn milk… that’s not a technical term. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Pre-heat the oven to 375˚F.

  • Step 4

    In an oven-proof skillet, crisp the bacon lardons over medium-low heat. Do this in batches so that the bacon crisps properly. Drain the lardons onto a paper towel lined plate until all the bacon is cooked. Set aside a tablespoon or so of bacon to use as garnish.

  • Step 5

    Remove all but 2 tablespoons of bacon grease from the pan. Place the skillet back over medium-low heat and add the butter, cream cheese and milk. Whisk to combine until the cream cheese has melted into the milk and is bubbly.
