The simple goodness of fresh corn and wholesome ingredients makes Scalloped Corn a heartwarming Amish classic.
Amish Scalloped Corn Recipe
If you’re like me, you might never have heard of this dish before. I grew up eating corn pudding and cornbread. But, this Amish scalloped corn recipe is somewhere in between the two in terms of texture.
I came across it after moving to Ohio and becoming more acquainted with the Amish community. Scalloped corn is a popular dish that typically combines corn with breadcrumbs or crackers, eggs, and sometimes cheese.
The salty and buttery notes from the Ritz crackers in this recipe give way to just a hint of sweetness from the corn. It is much tastier than I would have believed, just looking at the ingredients list.
But that’s not really all that surprising. I’ve yet to meet an Amish recipe I didn’t like. They sure know how to make delicious food and keep it simple!
