Lyle had been requesting scalloped corn. This recipe, from the Taste of Home Holiday Recipes 2003 is for a basic scalloped corn. Lyle and Bettie both thought it was just like they had growing up and so were very pleased with it.
I found it quite easy to make using frozen corn and will make it again for them.
This is scalloped corn like Grandma or Mom made. Still a good simple vegetable to feed your family and inexpensive to prepare.
4 cups fresh or frozen corn
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk (I would use 1 1/4 cup next time)
1 cup (about 30) crushed saltine crackers, divided
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
Salt and pepper to taste
In a medium bowl combine the corn, eggs, milk, 3/4 cup crushed crackers, butter, sugar, salt and pepper and onion. Transfer to a 1 1/2 quart greased baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining crumbs and bake uncovered, at 325° for 1 hour or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
