I got a version of this from a neighbor as a kid. I was the local latchkey child, and all the moms pitched in to help me learn "the skills of a lady" (this was a while ago!) It's a staple in our house. We make this when we want a hearty, simple, one-dish meal that takes less than 30 minutes! You can add all sorts of things to this, potatoes, bell pepper, bacon, etc. but this is the way we almost always make it. The cheapest creamed corn doesn't taste as good to us, so we use a name brand. They're still pretty cheap, less than .75 a can usually. I don't add salt since the corn and the cheese are both salty.
