I've never mixed mine all together, and I've never added sugar. Not sure the purpose. I use frozen corn and make my own cream corn, layering each in a casserole dish, with saltines and a few slim pats of butter over each layer. 3 layers, cream corn in the middle. The eggs and milk are whisked along with pepper and poured over top. My grandma passed this to my mom, who passed it to me. You can add onions and pepper if want, grandma's recipe didn't. Don't measure anything, all done by feel, and because I've made it over 40 years now. Delicious, it's requested often!

This is pretty much the recipe I have used over the years. However, I use 1 can regular corn and one can creamed corn (usually have both on hand) as well as the milk and eggs. I have never had a problem with dryness...but it is not soupy. Don't forget to add the melted butter and I use a little more pepper.

We have a large summer garden and I am always looking for a good and easy way to use up leftovers etc. This one is a keeper. I did not actually measure anything to a tee. Cut the corn off the cob, added more onion since I had so much from the garden, threw in some green pepper too. I had a lot so added an extra egg and a tad more milk so it would not be dry. Crushed an amount of saltines without measuring. I am a seasoned cook to I could tell by the texture that it looked right. So yes, I went off the path when making this but it was a hit with the family. I think the saltines were a great difference from the usual, bread crumbs or corn flake or potato chip or onion topping. All recipes are subject to adjustment to personal taste.

This was just ok. I was hoping it would be much creamier. It was a little dry and not great as a leftover,

Oh my goodness, so many corn sides have corn bread or white but this one is great........ I don't add sugar and I use one can of creamed corn and one can of drained whole kernel corn..... Dont' change the saltines......its what makes the difference. I add all saltines rather than put on top So good

My only change was using 3/4 cup plain bread crumbs. This was a delicious corn recipe to use! Thank you for sharing, Sandy Jenkins!

I made this Scalloped Corn from Simple and Delicious, and it was simple and delicious. I forgot to get saltines, so I substituted French Fried Onions. I also threw in a handful of cheese (just because I love cheese), I think crumbled bacon would be delicious too. Since it's just hubby and me, I divided in 2 dishes, so we can cook it up fresh again. This is a great side dish, loved it!??

This was simple to prepare. I was looking for a light vegetable dish. This paired well with fish and fresh fruit for dinner. I even used whole grain crackers and it worked great.
