When I first saw this recipe in Paul Prudhomme's cookbook, I was intrigued by it immediately because it did not occur to me to actually brown the corn to caramelize. Corn goes from non sweet to sweet - what magic! And I was also intrigued by his use of evaporated milk and eggs in the end. I've made this recipe many times and each time I make this, I am amazed by the transformation corn goes through. I've adapted the use of eggs and evaporated milk in other recipes and eggs used this way bring out the richness of many dishes. This dish is not for the diet conscious. It may look like lots of steps, but once you begin this recipe, you will find that most of the steps are stirring.
