WE rarely have the same main dish at Christmas each year, since I really enjoy trying new recipes. This corn, however, has a permanent place on our table. My whole family loves it, but my son, especially, would be so disappointed if I forgot to include this with our holiday meal. -Deb Hauptmann, Mohnton, Pennsylvania

"This was delicious! My only (very tiny) complaint is that it was thicker than I expected. That may have been because I used whole milk. I cut this recipe in half for my husband and I. I followed the suggestion of some of the other reviewers that this was a tad too sweet and cut back the sugar even further (to about 1 tbsp). I think it could have used just a tad more than that, so I may just do the recipe as written next time. I really loved the parmesan on top, it went perfectly with the sweetness of the corn. I'll definitely make this again!"

"I made this for an outdoor BBQ. Everyone loved it! I reduced the sugar to two tablespoons, increased the pepper to a 1/4 teaspoon and used two bags of frozen corn which equals about 7 cups. I will make this again."

"LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! Bought the Taste of Home Holiday cookbook a few years ago and flipped through and found this. I've made it for each family gathering since. @DDarby1290 (and anyone else interested), I always heat this up ahead of time, then broil with cheese on top when ready or when the oven is available. :)"

"I found this recipe several years ago and have made it numerous times for holiday meals and special events. I have passed it on to others who just had to have the recipe. Tonight I was looking for a printable version for my cousin who I told about it tonight. It is delicious and I will be serving it as usual for both Thanksgiving and Christmas!"

"Sounds very good! Has anyone tried making this ahead of time and heating in the oven prior to broiling?"

"Loved this recipe. Went over really well with the whole family. I used a mixture of canned creamed corn and whole kernel corn just because I had it on hand. I also topped with a bread crumb and Parmesan cheese mixture to absorb some of the liquid and it turned out really well. It has already been requested again for next Thanksgiving."

"I found this to be way to sweet. I will be experimenting to see how much sugar I actually like. I'm currently thinking a little over half what it calls for. And I think adding green peppers and sugarsnap peas would be great in this."
