YUM-O!!!! I loved this!!! Just like home for me. I did add a little garlic powder, black pepper and cajun seasoning. Instead of the milk and flour, I used a half a cup of heavy cream. Not diet friendly at all but is anything made down South ever diet food? 15 stars, Mom!!!!!

I found this recipe in a cookbook I have called "Like Grandma Used To Make". Since it's already here I'll just review it. :-) I used frozen corn kernels and green peppers. Love it! Can't wait to try it again with fresh corn.
