I have been living in Kansas City for almost 10 years now. It seems so crazy that much time has passed! I can vividly remember my first moments in the city. It was really tough to learn my way around in a totally new environment, make friends, etc.

Finding great BBQ to enjoy was not tough. I frequented all of the well known local spots. I wanted to come up with my own favorites. Everyone has their own personal list and rankings of which restaurants are the best. The cheesy corn at Jack Stack always stood out to me. For this reason alone, Jack Stack will always be on my personal list for best KC BBQ.

We can argue until the cows come home about which restaurant is #1. That is a conversation reserved for another day.

Of course, cheesy corn pairs wonderfully with BBQ meats, but it will also make an amazing side dish for most meals. I decided I wanted to make my own dish at home this year for the upcoming Christmas holiday. With a few modifications, I was also able to lighten up the recipe some without manipulating the great taste.

  • 4 oz cream cheese I used Reduced-Fat
  • 2 12 oz bags frozen whole kernel corn
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 oz ham cut into cubes
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, chopped into chunks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Turn the Instant Pot on the Saute function. Add the olive oil and cubed ham to the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the corn, 1 cup of cheddar, cream cheese, broth, seasonings, butter, milk, and whipping cream to the pot. Close the lid on the pot and seal. Stir to combine. Cook for 8 minutes on Manual High-Pressure Cooking.
  • Allow the steam to release naturally for 5 minutes instead of quick release.
  • Remove the lid.
  • Combine the water and flour in a small bowl to create a slurry. Pour the flour slurry into the pot and stir. The mixture should thicken.
  • Place 1/2 of the cheesy corn in a casserole dish. Place the cheddar cheese chunks throughout. Sprinkle 1/2 of the shredded cheddar throughout.
  • Top with the remaining cheesy corn. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese throughout.
  • Bake in the oven for 5-8 minutes until the cheese bubbles.
  • Cool before serving.

Made this for a 4th of July potluck and it got rave reviews. I will be putting this in my regular rotation.

I added onions (saute'ed with the ham), garlic powder, a healthy dollop of grainy mustard and a small brick of Boursin carmelized onion and herbs cheese
