This really is old fashioned! It comes from "The Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedia of Cooking and Homemaking" which was published in 1940. This wonderful book has been passed down through 4 generations of women in my family. Proof that some of the best stuff is the oldest and simplest.

I loved how easy this recipe was, and it sure tasted good too! I followed the instructions to the last letter, but since I had scaled down to 1 serving, my potatoes were cooked much faster. The combination of corn, potatoes, and milk is quite something! I had this with 7-Grain bread for a fabulous dinner. Thanks Kari!

I left out the butter and used skim milk, and it still turned out great. My husband really liked it with the cheese on top.
