  • 1 cup Clifty Farm country ham diced
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter cubed
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • ½ cup flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 4 ounces cream cheese cubed
  • 2 ounces Velveeta cubed
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoons paprika
  • 12 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large saucepan, heat the diced country ham over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the ham is light pink, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add butter and garlic. Cook until the butter is melted, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in flour, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  • Whisk in milk, stirring constantly until thoroughly combined. Bring mixture to a boil and continue to cook until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in cream cheese, Velveeta, cheddar, and paprika. Heat, stirring frequently, until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Remove the pan from heat. Pour in corn. Stir until corn is evenly coated with the cheese mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour mixture into a greased 9” x 13” baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is browned and the casserole is bubbling.
  • Remove pan from the oven and allow to sit for 15 minutes before serving.
