Creamy Baked Corn with Parmesan

A dear friend passed this recipe on to me several years ago. It’s one of those tried and true ones that I love yet somehow seem to forget about. Then one day I’ll have this epiphany. Baked corn? Yes, please.

I dig out my tried and true binder. My oldest drew the cover for me many years ago. I truly wish I would have dated the back of it. I’ll treasure this picture always with the steaming blueberry pie. It’s just precious. OK. Who wants blueberry pie now? Get corn back on the brain. This post is about corn.

So this delicious little recipe just happens to be one of Mom’s (my) favorite recipes indeed. Last time I made I didn’t have to hunt hard. There it was front and center of the binder. Why oh why, do I forget about most delicious corn? I’m so sorry!

I would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving menu. I’m thinking of making it to take to my Mom’s. They will be so hooked they’ll never want regular corn again. I can already hear my dad raving over how good it is. He’s the type of man that if something is good you just may hear about it for the rest of the day. Doesn’t bother me though. Who doesn’t like to talk about food?

We’ll don’t forget to give this corn a try. I know you won’t regret it. Well except for the calories…. *Burp* I need to get my workout clothes on. 😉

Love and blessings!

    I made this as a side for Xmas dinner and loved it. It was easy to prepare. I made it the day before and simply popped it in the oven the day of. I made my own half and half since I do not know if they sell that where I live (I live in Costa Rica). Great, flavorful side dish. Gracias for posting.
