  • My kids gobble this right up:
    Corn pudding:

    * 2 c. cooked corn (frozen or canned or fresh)
    * 2 beaten eggs
    * 3 Tbsp. melted butter
    * 1/4 c. sugar
    * dash of salt
    * 1 c. milk
    * 1/2 c. crushed saltines.

    Combine all ingredients, reserving a small portion of the cracker crumbs. Place in a 1 quart casserole dish and sprinkle remaining cracker crumbs on top. Dot with small pats of butter and bake in 325 degree oven for 50 minutes.

  • Corn salsa!

    Take a bag of frozen corn and defrost, don't heat it, just warm it up, add 2 diced tomatoes, 1 small onion diced, 1 clove garlic minced, two diced avocados, and one minced jalapeno. Mix together and add 2 tbsp lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.

    YUMMYUMM!

  • Cooks.com has lots of ideas. Cornbread made with cream corn in it. Corn chowder, I sometimes mix yellow and white corn (drained about 1/2 cup each of finely minced onion,red and green bell pepper. Saute the onion in a little butter just until softened, add peppers and corn. We add lots of fresh cracked pepper..heat all the way through.

  • I also make fried corn, creamed corn, and corn on the cob (my MIL made some that was bacon wrapped and it was good too!)

  • I don't measure this, and it comes out great every time. Frozen corn, butter (real butter), cream cheese, black pepper, green chilies (the little can). For each pound of corn, I use probably 4 tablespoons each of butter & cream cheese - cut up into small peices, mix together with some pepper, add in chilies (optional), and bake til bubbly. I love doing this in the crock pot for potlucks or in my little one for our family. Sooo good, creamy, and you cannot taste the cream cheese!
