"I had to come up with this quick. Every Thanksgiving my mom serves Green Giant Niblets corn in butter sauce and I promised I would pick it up for her and bring it on Thanksgiving day. When I went to the store, they were sold out! I made this recipe and brought it already prepared to Thanksgiving dinner. Nobody was the wiser! I saved some money too, because I used store brand corn! This recipe makes a lot...you may want to half it."
Serving Size: 1 (106 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 10
"We thought this recipe was great Karen. I tried it on a smaller scale a couple of weeks ago and thought it tasted just like the frozen boxed variety at a fraction of the price. We're having a houseful for Thanksgiving (Canadian!) this weekend and I plan on making this part of the menu. "
"Great and soooooo much cheaper than buying the actual Green Giant. My youngest daughter is the "connoisseur of corn" and she rates this 10 stars! Between the six of us last night we managed to polish off the whole pan and thats a lot of corn. Got to admit that being in the midst of "corn country" here in Illinois, and only 20 miles from a Del Monte plant where they make this type of corn, did I feel like a traitor? Heck No...this recipe is GREAT!!!"
"This was great! Simple, quick,& tasty way to serve corn that I will return to time and again. I was looking for a simple recipe to prepare with my elementary school-aged daughter, who is learning how to cook. She made this entirely on her own while I observed, and it turned out perfect and exactly like the purchased variety. We halved the recipe and it came out perfect. Thanks! "
"I thought this recipe was wonderful, I stopped buying the green giant corn in butter sauce because I would need two packages to feed my family and it was getting to expensive, but now I have this recipe and can make it anytime thanks"
"Karen, What a tasty dish this is.I've never tried the Green Giant Niblets in Butter sauce,But if it tastes anything like this they must make big bucks selling it.My Husband wants this again (REAL SOON) he said.Ha Thanks so much, Darlene Summers "
"Another winner Karen! I've made this recipe several times, sometimes substituting different frozen veggies but always with terrific results. This simple recipe elevates a quick side dish into something special. Thank you for sharing!"
"I cut recipe way down to serve 4 and it worked great. I was afraid it would be gummy but it was not. I used store brand corn and no one was the wiser, LOL!"
"I've made this many times, but never got around to reviewing it. I have to say, it's just as the frozen bag. We love it."
"This is really good. I never bother with the cornstarch and water and it is still great. Thanks!"
"Perfect! I never buy Green Giant, its just too expensive. With this recipe, we won't miss out any longer! I cut the recipe into 1/4 the size and it was perfect for the two of us. I think the next pot luck, this will be what I bring. Its easy and quick and probably travels very well! Thanks!"
"I'm a believer! You're a genius! It went together so easily and tasted great. "
"This is a great recipe! TY"
"Great copykat.....tastes just like the Niblets in butter sauce! I halved everything because this recipe makes a lot....a good thing because I would of eaten the whole thing of I made it!! YUMMY!!!"
"Very good. I don't buy the packaged stuff anymore because it's too expensive. I used green beans instead because I didn't have enough corn. Added a smidgen bit more cornstarch because it wasn't thickening as much as I thought it should. Had to add a little bit of margarine because I ran out of butter and I suggest you stick with ALL butter."
"I really liked this recipe. I love corn and this was simple and tasty. I will definitely make this often. Thanks"
"Tried to cut this down for two but didn't come out right. Too salty and never did thicken up. Probably better just to make the entire recipe."
"This is a quick and easy side dish. Not just ordinary corn!"
"This was very good, Will make again for sure! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Nice enough tasting, but what is wrong with corn and plain butter? I don't see the point of trying to duplicate the packaged stuff we try to avoid. And adding more carbohydrates to a food that is good to begin with is something that I do not understand. Who needs a substitute for over priced fast food vegetables?"
