I have tried to stay away from talking about food or giving dieting tips, because I am a failure at the dieting part. Food is always on my mind so that part I have down pretty good, but don’t want to bore you with my total and crazy obsession with food.
I do want to share that I am going to a potluck tomorrow and wanted to make scalloped corn the way my mother taught me back 40 some years ago. I have no recipe to go from, but my memory isn’t want it use to be. Looking on the internet I found about 500 varieties. I found some that had crust and some that have toppings, but here is my mother’s simple recipe.
3 cans of Cream Corn
1 cup crushed saltine crackers
1/2 cup of butter
Seasoning – Salt and pepper
Mix all ingredients and bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
I remember this so very well. So watch out potluck lovers this is the big hit for the season. If you want to doctor it up a bit – you can use Ritz crackers. But it is a great side dish and it is the time of the year we do side dishes with our Turkey and other meats.
I am not sure what the calorie count is… but I am sure you can determine from the ingredients.
Just have a little and call it good. It is a share type dish that even back in my childhood was a favorite of all the family. No leftovers to worry about. All the little kids would say – where did the “scalped corn go.” So for many years I knew it only by Scalped Corn. Until Someone looked at me crazy and laughed. You mean Scalloped Corn. Oh I said! “Whatever!” “it still takes good!!”
