Every year for Thanksgiving I basically make the same meal with one or two exceptions. For example, I sometimes make potato salad instead of mashed potatoes or I'll use a different stuffing recipe. This year I was going to make my corn fritters (the non-spicy version...so super delicious with maple syrup!) instead of corn-on-the-cob but then I came across the following recipe on the Betty Crocker website and decided that this is it!! (I'll show you a picture of mine after Thanksgiving.)
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
- 1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
- 1/2 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 4 cups milk (1 quart)
- 6 eggs, slightly beaten
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
- 2 bags (12 oz) Green Giant ® Valley Fresh Steamers™ Niblets® frozen corn, thawed, drained
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley or 2 tablespoon parsley flakes
- 3/4 cup Progresso® plain bread crumbs
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish or 3-quart casserole with cooking spray.
In 4-quart Dutch oven, melt 1/2 cup butter over medium heat. Add onion; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until well blended. Stir in milk. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Gradually stir in eggs and cheese. Stir in corn and parsley. Pour into baking dish.
In small bowl, mix bread crumbs and 3 tablespoons melted butter; sprinkle over corn mixture.
Bake uncovered 55 to 65 minutes or until mixture is set and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

bread crumbs - $1.89
Don't forget to come visit me here the day after Thanksgiving! I'll be having a little Black Friday deal right here and it won't cost you a dime! Matter of fact, you'll be getting a few dimes. But that's all I'm telling you right now...you'll just have to be here Friday to find out just how many dimes that will be ;-) I won't be here again until Friday... tomorrow is a HUGE cooking day for me and I doubt I'll even look at the computer. I hope all of you & your families have the most wonderful, fun, blessed Thanksgiving ever!
*No offense to Betty Crocker but I use generic products instead of the name brand (they taste just as good if you cook them right ☺) and my cost reflects that use of generic products.
