I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. We had a fantastic day with great food and wonderful company. It was the first Thanksgiving that I hosted so I went a little crazy and made tons of homemade food. This dish has everything one could ever want in a corn side dish. It’s creamy AND crunchy! If you like creamed corn you will go nuts for this…Even if you don’t like creamed corn you’ll fall in love with it! This recipe makes a huge amount. I was able to give out leftovers and have a whole tupperware full of it for myself. I will definitely be making this again. Original recipe found at myrecipes.com
