This creamy casserole should shout sweet, pure corn flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
For our Scalloped Corn recipe, we found fresh corn yielded a superior texture and flavor compared with the canned variety. To speed the work of de-silking the corn, we donned rubber kitchen gloves and rubbed our hands down each husked cob. The friction easily removed the silk.
Boiling the corn in half-and-half made for a lighter and fresher-tasting casserole. We then pureed some of the corn with the rest of our casserole mixture to thicken it and add body to the casserole. A Ritz cracker topping added the appropriate balance of saltiness and sweetness.
