crushed saltine crackers

I fixed this for Thanksgiving to take to my parents. My Grandma (85yo) has been wanting the recipe since then, She states this is the best she has had. She is from the country and I remember visiting when she made everything from scratch, her "canned" veggies etc.. were from a mason jar, butter was from a churn, ah to go back in time. Well, if she said it is the best, then it must be!!!!
For me, this recipe turned out like thickened cream corn. I followed the recipe exact and then added another cup of crackers. It was still very runny and had no flavor. Not the scalloped corn I was looking for at all but it might just be a different type than what I'm used to.
My husband has been trying to get me to make Scalloped Corn for about the past 16 years but with all the varying versions I was always leery on picking the right one. I decided to surprise him this last Thanksgiving using this recipe – I realize now that this dish needs about 15-20 minutes to ‘rest’ before serving. I got a second change at Thanksgiving dinner when my daughter and son-in-law came home to visit while on R&R from their tour in Iraq. This time I used 1 sleeve of cracker and ¼ cup butter in the corn mix and 1 sleeve of crackers and ½ cup butter on the top. A huge hit!! I was even asked to bring this as my passing dish for the Family Reunion ;o)
This recipe is a great alternative to regular corn, which I would eat every night if my husband allowed me! The only thing that I changed was that I used 1 can cream corn and 1 can regular corn (scaled down the recipe). By adding regular corn, it had a "cornier" texture, as opposed to just creamy.
This recipe is so easy and delicious. The only change I made was that I used one can of whole corn and two cans of creamed. I had this for a Thanksgiving side and everyone loved it.
I made this recipe as a "run through" before the final day - just to make sure we liked the recipe & to see if I would want to serve it for Christmas dinner. Let me tell you, it was a hit! I didn't do my "timing" all that well, so I ended up cooking it in the microwave in a casserole dish & it was still fantastic! I've been to previous family gatherings where someone has brought Scalloped Corn & it wasn't very good, either too soupy or too thick. This one was just perfect. I would recommend this recipe - FOR SURE!
One of my family Thanksgiving traditions is this dish - I always add a few extra crackers to thicken it a bit more! Excellent and very tastey!
Excellent, i cook it a little longer than the recipe calls for. About an hour or more.
