    Delicious! When I have fresh corn I make up at big batch and freeze it in meal size portions. If you are using the frozen corn it taste like fresh corn.

    Good as it is. Another way I like it is to add 1/4 cup 2% shredded cheddar. Granite Falls, MN, I lived there for a bit as a child.

    Made this several times already. I use frozen corn and evaporated milk (fat free) instead of the half-and-half. This simple recipe really takes ordinary corn up a notch or two!

    This was very good, but the sauce was a little thin. Next time I will follow annsway1's suggestion to add cornstarch to thicken the sauce a little.

    Made this with baked fried chicken & it was so delish. The kids were asking for 2nds & they never do that with vegetables.
