This is the way my paternal grandmother made cream corn. She had a garden of her own, so fresh corn was easy to come by. If you can't get fresh corn or your corn is dry, you will have to use the option to add dairy cream.The very best time to make this is when Silver Queen Corn is coming in!
Originated at Green Springs Inn in St. Francisville, LA by Madeline Nevill, this dish has become a favorite nationwide. (From Tony's Seafood in Lousinana website). Need I say more? Yum. ;) Since the garlic cheese roll is hard to find in some areas (mine included) you could substitute Boursin, Alouette or Rondele as they make spreadable flavored fresh cheeses in garlic flavor.
This is the best green bean dish I have ever had! The mixture of onion, bell pepper, celery, tomatoes, and cheese blends so nicely with the green beans. I got the recipe from an friend's mother over 20 years ago and she got the recipe from her mother who had a local cooking show in the southwest Louisana/ southeast Texas area. You can taste the southern Creole influence in this dish. You won't be disappointed!
