  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth. In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium heat. Stir in corn, evaporated milk, 3/4 teaspoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring just to a boil. Stir in cornstarch mixture; return to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened; cool slightly.

  3. Bake, uncovered, 40 minutes. In a small bowl, toss Rice Krispies with melted butter; sprinkle over casserole. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until golden brown.
    Freeze option: Cool unbaked casserole, reserving Rice Krispies topping for baking; cover and freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake casserole as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through and for a thermometer inserted in center to read 165°.
    Yield: 8 servings.

"I followed the directions exactly. We did not like the bread in this dish. It was not real tasty. I have used Southern Living's Tee's Corn Pudding for years but thought I would try this. Very disappointing!"

"FYI...1 small onion is about 4 oz or 1/2 cup. I go easy on the onion and like just enough to lend flavor! ....thanks for trying my recipe. I enjoy reading comments so please submit a review!"

"This was easy to prepare, just a few ingredients and very tasty. Corn casserole is a staple in the Midwest but our West Coast dinner guests had never tasted it before."

"I cut the recipe in thirds and baked the corn casserole in two ramekins. I used 2% milk in place of evaporated milk because I didn't have any on hand. I served it with egg noodles and BBQ veggie chicken strips. Delicious. Thank you, Lonnie, for sharing your family recipe."
