Corn Casserole Recipe

This year for Thanksgiving I'll be making this corn casserole dish. My grandmother would often make this for the holidays and Sunday dinners. I couldn't imagine Thanksgiving without it. This casserole is not some culinary masterpiece but what I call good home cooking. Enjoy.

Corn Casserole Recipe

2 14oz cans of corn cream style
1 12oz can of evaporated milk

2 TBS butter
2TBS sugar

2TBS flour

1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs beaten

1 cup crushed corn flakes

1. mix all ingredients except butter and corn flakes

2. Pour into a glass baking dish or small ramekins.

3. Sprinkle crushed corn flakes over the top and add butter.

4. Bake for 45 - 1hr at 350 degrees. You can either bake the dish as normal or place it in a water bath. I don't think the original recipe calls for the water bath but my grandmother says it cooks better this way. I've cooked the dish both ways and the results seem to be about the same.

* Sometimes the dish can come out a little watery at the bottom. If this happens don't worry, it will still taste just as good.

The inside texture is like a soft custard. It will not be completely solid.

Hope all of you have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Have searched for a down-home corn casserole with corn flake topping and never been happy until now. This was really delicious and easy to make. Have added it to my recipe file and passed it on to my family.
