A Better Corn Casserole

Sasha Kamen


I've had this recipe since I worked in the Sales and Catering Department of a swank hotel in Dallas in the 1980s. The proportions are different from the standard recipe for corn casserole that you see nowadays, and is less sweet. When I make it for a potluck, everyone raves, so I guess that's a pretty good recommendation.
