Scalloped Corn

Each bite of this spoonable scalloped corn features sweet, crunchy nuggets of corn in a creamy sauce topped with crispy crushed crackers. We use frozen corn to keep the prep time to a minimum, but if fresh corn is in season, it won't disappoint. You will need 12 to 16 ears of corn to get 8 cups of corn kernels. Serve this easy side dish alongside pulled pork or ribs at your next barbecue, with collard greens on the side.

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup reduced-fat milk

  • 8 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels, divided

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, divided

  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 ½ cups crushed saltine crackers (from 1 cracker sleeve), divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Place eggs, milk, 4 cups corn and 1 tablespoon melted butter in a blender. Process until creamy and smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in scallions, salt, paprika, onion powder, pepper, 1/2 cup crushed saltines and the remaining 4 cups corn. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

  2. Stir the remaining 3 tablespoons melted butter and 1 cup crushed saltines together in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the corn mixture.

  3. Bake until browned and firm to the touch, about 40 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes. Garnish with additional scallions, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
