This was a tasty meal. However I did make a few changes. I made my own creamed corn listed of using the caned stuff. Next time I'll use 1/2 a cup of bread crumbs. I found using the amount suggested took away from the creaminess of the corn.Cream Corn recipe found here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/cream-corn-like-no-other/detail.aspx

I made this recipe for my family along with some grilled chicken. It was a hit! The whole family loved it. While I won't be making this very often (not being very healthy) it is a good special treat! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I sometimes mix one can of cream-style corn with one can of either drained regular whole kernel corn or shoepeg corn and a splash of milk. My family prefers it that way. This is a simple but great recipe.

I made this recipe last year for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit! People are asking for it again this year. It looks like this one will be around for years to come! It is very simple to make but the taste is fantastic!
