Silky Corn Casserole

When the first Florida corn appears in the grocery store in May I always make this recipe.  The first corn is typically not good on the cob, but is fantastic prepared this way. 

Silky Corn Casserole
originally from Cooking Light 1993

1 T margarine/butter
1/2 c sliced green onions ( I used chives this time)
2 1/4 c 1% milk
1 T plus 1 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1/4 t red pepper
1/3 c plus 1 T all purpose flour
2 eggs plus 3 egg whites, lightly beaten
3 1/2 c cut from the cob corn (about 7 ears) use only fresh, not frozen or canned

Melt margarine in a sauce pan over medium heat.  Add green onions, saute 1 minute.  Add milk and next 3 ingredients; cook 3 minutes or until hot (do not boil).  Remove from heat, and set aside. 

Combine flour and eggs in a bowl;  beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until well blended.  Gradually stir in 1/2 c hot mixture;  gradually stir in remaining hot milk mixture.  Stir in corn; pour into a shallow 2 qt. casserole coated with cooking spray.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

  1. My kids (15 and 18 and know their own minds and are bigger than me so I can;t force them, heehee) don't like eggs, otherwise I would serve this, it looks yummy.

  2. I love corn casseroles like this!! It looks awesome, thanks!

  3. I can't wait for our corn to arrive at the farm stands. This looks divine!

    I'd love it if you'd stop by for a visit.
