Baked Corn Cups

Cheddar Corn Cup Bakes004

I saw this recipe on BHG and thought I would try it out…sort of a pre-holiday test run.  This would be great to serve buffet style or at a sit down dinner.   It was easy and yet had the appearance of being something special.  I tweaked the recipe I found a bit and below is my take on it.

Baked Corn Cups

~ serves 12

2 16-ounce packages frozen whole kernel corn

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

4 eggs

12 {or 10} ounce can evaporated milk

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup shredded cheese ~ I had cheddar on hand so that is what I used but you could substitute Swiss or gruyere as the original recipe called for that

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease twelve 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups; set aside. In a covered medium saucepan, cook fresh corn and onion in a small amount of boiling lightly salted water for 6 minutes. (Or cook frozen corn and onion according to package directions for corn.) Drain well.

2. In a medium bowl, lightly beat eggs with a fork. Stir in drained corn and onion, evaporated milk and salt. Stir in the cup of the cheese. Pour into prepared ramekins. Place filled ramekins in a two 15x10x1-inch baking pans {6 ramekins in each pan}.

3. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 12 side-dish servings.

You can cut the recipe in half for 6 servings.
