This recipe has long been a mystery, not because my mother was never willing to relinquish the privileges to her secret recipe but like many of the great cooks in our family, she doesn't write down her recipes. This scalloped corn is moist, crunchy-on-top and loaded with sweet niblets of corn. It has always been a favorite at family holiday dinners. PLEASE NOTE: The amount of milk is estimated. Mom advises to add the milk last, slowly pouring it in until you just start to see it come up to the surface of the other ingredients.
