Scalloped Corn

Bettie and Lyle have been asking for Scalloped corn, so thought I would give this recipe in The Practical Produce a try. It is a basic, easy to do dish and did not require a lot of time to get ready. They felt it could have used just a touch of sugar, as the corn was not real sweet. I used frozen corn from the store and as it calls for cooked corn cooked it in the microwave this morning and put it in the fridge until ready to use. That worked out well, and this is certainly a easy dish to put together.

  1. I love scalloped corn. My mom made that when I was a child. This is a very old recipe.

  3. this is very similar to the recipe that Edna Lewis published for southern Corn Pudding. She didn't use the crumbs, added 1/3 cup sugar (that made it too sweet--I use less than 1/4 cup) and she also grated nutmeg over the top before baking it in a water bath. I've had it made with at least part heavy cream instead of milk and that is amazingly rich. I also add some black pepper and a sprinkle of cayenne with the grated nutmeg for a bit more flavor.
