    Didn't change one thing with this recipe. I dressed it lightly and left it overnight in the fridge. Delicious  -  25 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Had a craving for this tonight but couldn't find fresh corn so I used two cans of Del Monte whole kernel corn and it was still delicious.  -  09 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good! I used summer corn on the cob left over from a picnic. Couldn't stop tasting it! Will definitely make it again.  -  03 Aug 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
