Scalloped Corn



As we try to break away from all the sweets (even if it is for just awhile) I found a couple of recipes that we could whip up this weekend.  One of those was Scalloped Corn.  Steamed corn makes a routine appearance at our house, so I figured that this would be a nice "upgrade".  The ingredients in this recipe are simple, and once again, there are no instructions.  I am sure for many of you who cook often or have been trained, knowing what to do with a recipe absent instructions comes natural.  Not for me.  And it is times like these I really wish I could walk in to my Grandma's kitchen and sit down and talk to her about this recipe.  When I close my eyes, I can see her and can imagine what she might say.  Honestly, on this one, I think she might laugh (she had a way of doing that) and tell me she had no idea OR she would have some story for me about who served it, when, with what and what they were doing...she loved to talk.  It's one of the things I loved about her.


Scalloped Corn
1 Tbsp Chopped onion
2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp flour
3/4 C. milk
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp mustard
2 Tbsp pimento
1 1/2 C. corn
2 egg yolks
1 C soft bread crumbs


I must have turned this recipe card over 20 times looking for some instructions or note on the back side...nothing.  It should be noted...Bubba doesn't want me to make this one again!  :)

  1. I'm kind of surprised he doesn't want you to make it again ... all the ingredients look good. How did it taste?

  2. Hi Diva..personally I like this..the onion, mustard and bread crumbs made for a great flavor. I think Bubba thought this would be creamier..many scalloped corn recipes are made with cream corn. This was not real creamy..could have been "cook error".
