Honey butter skillet corn is a creamy and sweet 15-minute side dish made with simple ingredients like corn, butter, cream cheese and honey.


  • 2 (10 oz.) packages frozen corn, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a 10″ skillet over medium heat, saute the corn until soft and heated through, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add butter and honey and stir to mix until they melt smoothly into the corn.
  3. Add cream cheese and season with salt and pepper. Stir to incorporate until the cream cheese has melted into the sauce. Do a taste test and adjust seasonings, if needed.
  4. Dish and serve hot.
  5. Enjoy!
