    WJKing's Note:

    My mom's award-winning corn pie! This is such a GREAT variation on traditional corn side dishes. This recipe is ALWAYS requested, so be prepared. Don't skimp on the cracker crumbs - I go heavy on them in the recipe - and this is truly the best when you use butter-flavored crackers (Club crackers or similar) - just not the same w/ saltine-type crackers. Enjoy this! I usually always double this recipe and make two pies, 'cuz everyone takes seconds (and thirds!) This also is simple to make ahead, then just bake when you're ready - perfect for after church or when you're in a hurry!

      yum.I used Trader Joe's frozen organic corn, which is super sweet and tasty, we made this for Christmas, and it was a big hit. Personally I could live on this stuff. Next year I'll try making it in advance, it was quite good reheated.

      I made this last night for dinner, and you were right. This IS a great variation of the traditional corn side dish. Very light with a lovely texture, and pretty to serve. Instead of adding onion salt, I minced about 3 Tablespoons of onion to go into the dish. I also sprinkled garlic powder on the crumb topping for a bit of flavor. I can see adding smoked turkey or ham to this for a main dish meal. Hmmmm...

      I was remembering my mom's corn pie and I'm thrilled to find a recipe that came so close to the original! Having no cracker crumbs I used a pie crust and I jazzed up the recipe a bit with 1 tsp. dried dill, 1 tbsp. onion powder, and a grind or two of fresh pepper. I also topped the pie with buttered bread crumbs and a sprinkling of paprika....the pie was delicious! Thanks so much for bringing back memories with this great recipe, WJKing! :)
