The person that gave me this week’s recipe asked me not to reveal her name so I am honoring her request. She told me that when she attends her family reunions, they always want her to bring this casserole.
The evening I prepared this corn, it was a perfect accompaniment to our dinner of Beef Pot Roast & Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Green Beans, Sliced Tomatoes Drizzled with Ranch Salad Dressing and Dinner Rolls
The ingredients called for in the casserole are staples in my kitchen. However since I did not have fresh jalapenos, I substituted pickled jalapenos and they worked just fine. If one does not like spicy, omit the jalapenos. Cleanup is a breeze because it is prepared and baked in one dish. Although simple to make, it would be a highlight for any meal and a good choice for a family reunion.
I send a huge thank you to the “Mystery Lady” for agreeing to share this KEEPER recipe with you.
MYSTERY LADY’S CORN CASSEROLE
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1 stick butter
½ cup flour
⅓ cup sugar
3 (11 oz.) cans of shoe-peg corn
1 finely chopped jalapenos
Place butter and cream cheese together in medium casserole pan (I used a casserole dish). Melt in microwave, stirring once every minute until creamy. Add flour and sugar; stir until well blended. Add corn (including the small amount of liquid used in packing) and chopped jalapenos; stir well. Place in oven and bake at 350° approximately 30 minutes or until top starts to become slightly brown.
