Scrumptious Cornbake

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

This scrumptious cornbake makes an ideal side dish for a summer barbeque. It is so tasty that you will not be able to resist a second helping. In fact I could not even take a photo of the finished bake once it came out of the oven because it was so quickly tucked into. :)

Ingredients: serves 12-16

1 kg frozen sweetcorn
8-10 rashers bacon
2 beaten eggs
200 ml milk
2 or 3 Tbs Flour
2 Packets crushed biscuits :
Ritz, Salticrax, or savoury crackers
Salt and Pepper ( Herbamare)
Garlic pepper ( optional)
25g Butter
50g grated cheese (optional)

Put the sweetcorn in a pot, add salt and about 100ml water.
Simmer for 10 min.

Add 2-3 Tbs Flour, 25g Butter, grated cheese &
100ml milk to the sweetcorn in the pot.
Stir and bring to the boil until it thickens.

Blend slightly using a hand blender

Place the bacon on a large baking tray and grill for 5-10 min until cooked.

Use a knife or kitchen scissors to cut bacon into little bits.

Crush biscuits into small pieces and add to mixture.
Keep 6-10 biscuits aside to sprinkle on top of the bake

Grease oven-proof dish.

In a seperate bowl, mix together milk, eggs, and seasoning.
Add to the sweetcorn mixture and place in greased oven-proof dish.
Crush 6-10 salticrax and sprinkle over the corn mixture.
Place blobs of butter on top.

Bake in a 180 C oven for 60 min or until golden brown on top. Serve hot.

As I was making this cornbake for a large number of people, I used a 35 cm x 29cm x 6 cm sized pyrex dish.
You could use a smaller dish which will make the corn bake thicker.

Tip: If creamstyle sweetcorn tins are available in your part of the world, it makes the recipe much easier.

Ingredients serve 8-12

1 tin sweetcorn
2 tins creamstyle sweetcorn
6-8 rashers cooked bacon
1 egg beaten with
half a cup milk
salt and pepper
1 packet crushed salted crackers

Mix all 3 tins of corn together in a bowl.
Add 1 beaten egg and milk so the mixture is moist enough once cooked.
Add cooked bacon bits and crushed biscuits
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and place in greased pyrex dish.
Crush about 6 salted crackers and sprinkle over the corn mixture.
Place blobs of butter on top.
Bake in a 180 C oven for 45-60min or golden brown on top. Serve hot.

Michele kindly gave me the recipe above. She used to bring this Scrumptious Cornbake to our SA braais for all to enjoy!
What a Treat!
