This was good, a nice change. I used canned corn as well as I didnt have frozen I also used seasoning salt instead of salt. Will be making it again for sure.

I liked this recipe but I thought it was too sweet. Next time I will add a pinch of sugar instead of the 1 tablespoon.,<br/>I also added some chopped pimento for color. <br/><br/>Thanks for sharing.

Really tasty! I had some really bland frozen corn and this helped it out immensely. I wasn't sure about it, with the corn meal, but decided to trust those who had reviewed it, and glad I did. Used seasoning salt, and cut back on amounts based on the smaller amount of corn I had. I also used Splenda rather than sugar, so I could try some and feel less guilty about it. Both kids enjoyed this, but not sure about my husband, as he ate it, but since he hardly eats any vegetables, there was no ringing endorsement. Thanks for sharing!
