This is delicious, and so simple and easy to make! Other reviewers suggest reducing or omitting the sugar, and I agree. I used about two teaspoons instead of two tablespoons, and it was bordering on too sweet. I'll cut it down to one teaspoon next time. I used pepperjack cheese, which gave it a nice little kick, and fresh broccoli, which cooked fine from raw without any pre-cooking. I can also see many variations on this recipe - cauliflower or asparagus instead of broccoli, different cheeses, or to make it into more of a main dish, adding some browned sausage, crumbled bacon, ham, kielbasa, or cubed cooked chicken. Two warnings: The recipe says it makes six servings, but I would say, as a side dish, it makes only four modest servings at most. And mine cooked through just fine in 40 minutes in a gratin dish; an hour would have left it pretty dried out, I think. I'm not a fan of creamed corn on its own, but as an ingredient in various dishes, it's a handy thing to keep in the pantry.
