Haven't made this, but it sounds good! The recipe calls for 6 fresh corn cobs, so I looked up the conversion charts, which suggests that 1 medium corn cob yields about 3/4 cup of corn. That would be 4.5 cups of frozen or canned corn, which sounds like rather a lot, to 200 gr of potatoes, which is about one large potato. Although the corn is pureed, which would make a difference. So I'm going to suggest 3 cups corn, but if you feel that this is too much, or too little, adjust accordingly. And let us know! :D Recipe comes from "Gourmet Stews And Mash".

Made this tonight as DH always loves to mix his mashed spuds with his veg. I did use the frozen corn. To be honest I didn't do the puree, just mixed it all together with the corn still in nibletts and it was a success. DH gave his "permission" to make this side any time. Made for For Your Consideration and my DH.

Great recipe. This is a wonderful way to use up some leftover corn. I chose to leave the corn whole vs. running it through the food processor and I did leave out the onion. DH really enjoyed this dish and went back to seconds. Made for the For Your Consideration tag game.

I really enjoyed this. I tried to puree the corn in a blender because I was too lazy to get my processor out for one serving. It didn't work very well because it all got gummed up in the bottom of the blender. So I gave up on trying to puree it. lol. But I really enjoyed the bites of corn throughout the potatoes so it worked out well. Thanks Karen E for a nice keeper. Made for For Your Consideration tag.
