  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. 

Best Baked Corn  (recipe adapted from Dean Koontz )

1 c. low fat milk, divided
2 T. butter
2 T. sugar
3 T. flour
1 15-oz. can of corn (whole and drained)
2 eggs (well beaten)
1 t. pepper

1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Spray an 8 inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

2.  Bring 3/4 c. milk, butter, and sugar to a boil over medium high heat.

3.  In a small bowl, whisk the flour into the remaining 1/4 c. milk until dissolved.  Whisk the flour mixture into the boiling milk until smooth.  This will make a white sauce.
4.  Pour the corn into the prepared dish and sprinkle with pepper.  Pour the milk mixture over top of it and mix well. 

5.  Stir the beaten eggs into the corn mixture and mix well.

6.  Bake for 1 hour.  Serve hot.
