Laura's Green-Chili Corn Casserole

Category: Fruits and Vegetables
Difficulty Rating: Easy
Not Healthybut manditory for Thanksgiving

This is a casserole, that since about 1976 has been served at every Thanksgiving we have ever had. Some Christmases too. Obviously, it is GOOD! We make my sister, Laura, make it. She's kinda tired of making it, but I'm afraid she will have to keep making it until we all die. Yes, others can make it, but it is best when Aunt Laura makes it. It's easy, and you can also make it for Easter to go with Plum-Chutney glazed ham! This recipe will maybe serve 4 people. Small people. But if you have a crowd--triple it. Oh, and if you do triple it, bake it in one greased 9X13 baking dish and one 8X8 pan or two small casserole dishes. Put the baking dishes in a large (roasting?) pan of water when you bake.

Ingredients:

2 eggs
3 T flour
1/2 C cream
1 C milk
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 T sugar
1 1/2 C corn
3 T melted butter
3 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 C chopped green chilis (mild, no seeds, please)

Directions:

Beat eggs and flour. Add cream, milk, salt, pepper and sugar. Add corn, butter, cheese and chilis. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Be sure and put casserole in a pan of water while baking! Use two pans if making a large ammount...to ensure the middle will be cooked.
