This recipe was released to the public in December. For years Dean Koontz talked about his wifes’ famous baked corn dish. I’m not really a huge fan of corn but since I am an avid reader of his books I decided to make this as a side dish. I wasn’t sure what I expected but this wasn’t it.
The sauce looks like an Alfredo but is much sweeter. It baked into a sweet corn quiche-type side dish. It was just ok. A little to sweet of a side dish for me. The reviews from my family were mixed. Some people really liked it and others thought it was just ok. It’s different and would be good for families that like sweeter vegetable dishes.
