This comforting casserole features sunny corn kernels tucked into a creamy custard. My mom got this recipe and many other excellent ones from her mother. By the time this crowd-pleasing corn dish left the table, my father, sister, brothers and I would have almost scraped it clean. —Sandy Jenkins, Elkhorn, Wisconsin


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen corn
  • 3/4 cup crushed saltines (about 23 crackers), divided


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients until blended. Stir in corn and 1/2 cup crushed saltines.
  2. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining saltines. Bake, uncovered, 55-65 minutes or until golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
