Indian Corn Casserole

Indian Corn Casserole


Laura Jinkins, Texas

One of our favorite holiday foods is Indian Corn Casserole. My mother first introduced this recipe to our family Thanksgiving meal. It quickly became a favorite. After I married, I made it for my husband's family our first Thanksgiving together. My father-in-law loved it so much that he had me write the recipe down and then he kept it in his briefcase under lock and key!!!

Here's the recipe:

3 well-beaten eggs



1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tbsp. sugar

6 oz. sharp process American cheese, shredded

2 (17 oz.) cans whole kernel corn, drained

10 slices of bacon, crisp

In a bowl, combine eggs, flour and sugar. Beat mixture thoroughly. Add cheese and corn. Crumble bacon, reserving 1/4 of it for top of casserole; add and stir until all ingredients are well mixed. Turn mixture into a 10x6x1 and 1/2 inch baking dish. Sprinkle remaining bacon on top. Bake at 350 degrees until knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

I usually double this recipe and bake in a 9x13 glass Pyrex dish, and leave it in the oven just a little longer. It should be cooked well enough that you can serve it in squares.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
