This is a treasured recipe from a dear family friend who has since passed. It's delicious served with savory holiday meals, and may be made as a side dish or a casserole. Everyone loves it! Omit toppings and baking steps to serve as a side dish, if desired.

Loved this corn - all of us even my husband (he had 3 helpings). I did only add 1 tbsp of sugar and added 1/3 less fat cream cheese and it is gone. I also used canned corn 2 cans because it is more crisp than frozen. Thanks DAS!

Yep... This is a good one. I used half the butter and half the sugar which made it a five star dish. Any more sugar and it would have been too sweet.

I thought this was really yummy but maybe just a tad too sweet. Next time I'll probably not use "sweet" corn and reduce the sugar a bit. My kids loved it!!

This did not work for us at all. This was too heavy too dry too sweet and canned corn would not have been as chewy as the frozen. Also I had to add seasonings that weren't called for. No one finished theirs and I had to throw most of the pan out.

Very very good---def. a keeper. I did not have any bread crumbs so used Ritz cracker crumbs and they tasted great. I plan to make this for a family supper over the Christmas holidays. Can't wait!

Made this for dinner and it was good. I used canned corn because that was all I had on hand. I also used crackers instead of breadcrumbs...only one suggestion is to reduc the amount of sugar...it was a little too sweet. Thanks for the post. Delicious

This was not my favorite recipe... The ingredients sounded wonderful but the corn was way too sweet and I thought a bit dry. May try again using canned summer crisp corn and 2 tablespoons of sugar instead of 1/4 cup.

This recipe was simple to make but way too rich and sweet! Next time I'm going to leave the sugar out (there's enough sweet flavor coming from the corn) and only add 1/2 of the cream cheese. Overall it's a simple side dish and the bread crumbs topping is delicious.

This would have been incredibly thick if I had not added some cream. Also I thought it had a little too much cream cheese. Other people liked it pretty well though.
