Rosie Makes A Mediocre Corn Casserole For Thanksgiving.

I love a good corn casserole. I want a recipe for an excellent corn casserole. Every Thanksgiving, I scour the internet for corn casserole recipes. I've yet to find the ultimate. THE Corn Casserole. THE ONE. Which will grace my Tableau-Scape for years to come. This one ain't it. It wasn't bad. It wasn't It. When I first read the recipe, I thought, "That's too much flour." Should've gone with that. 'Nuf said. Here's the recipe: CREAMY CORN PUDDING (??!!??) 4 TB butter 1/2 cup flour 2 TB sugar 1 tsp salt 1 cup milk 1 can cream style corn 1 can corn 3 eggs, separated Melt butter. Add in flour. Stir, over medium low heat to make a roux. Comme ca. Put the squigly thingie over the c in ca.
Add some cream into the roux, whisking.
Sugar in.
Whisk egg yolks briskly.
Add yolks into roux.
Add in corn.
Beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Use pristine beaters. Whenever you beat egg whites, have a perfectly clean and dry bowl, dry and clean beaters. And egg whites with absolutely NO yolk material in there. If yolk is in your whites, try eradicating it with an egg shell. Lure the yolk with the shell. It will either come or not. If it doesn't, toss the whites.
Fold whites gently with corn mixture.
Into buttered casserole dish.
Bain Marie. Put the corn casserole inside another dish with water half-way up.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Goood. Kinda. But not spectacular. I want terrific. Can any of my readers give me THE CORN CASSEROLE? JTLYK, I want a great recipe to showcase corn. I'm thinking about trying Smitten Kitchen's Sweet Corn Spoonbread. Looks pretty good. Anybody else out there that would like to share a corn pudding/casserole/spoonbread recipe with me, please do. I'm desperate. Thank you.

How about some cheese and canned chopped green chiles?
