I wanted to share with you a special holiday tradition for my family. Scalloped Corn! This delicious corn casserole is a big hit and is big enough to feed a large crowd.

My family has this recipe on all the major holidays and even for occasional family dinner. I actually don’t remember a holiday when we didn’t have this recipe and growing up I remember my mom making this dish and how wonderful the house smelled. Now, since my mom is in charge of preparing the majority of the meal I have taken over making the scalloped corn. This dish is a little complicated and has several steps but in the end it is totally worth the time.
