Tips for Making Scalloped Corn
- If you want to use fresh corn in place of the canned corn, just use about 4 cups worth.
- You can also use frozen corn if you prefer.
- Mixing the crushed saltines in with the corn mixture is really important for the texture. You can even skip sprinkling the rest of the saltines on top and just mix them all in if you prefer.
- You can also use bread crumbs, crushed club crackers or Ritz crackers in place of the saltines.
- You can sprinkle french fried onions on top for an even crunchier topping.
- If you like everything cheesy, throw in about 3/4 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese before you bake it.
- If you like a little kick to your side dishes, you can add diced green chilis.
- I’ve often mixed this up the night before. Just cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge until you want to bake it.
