    I am in the “Hammy” states but I am definitely a “Corny” girl. This recipe sounds so good. I love anything cheesy and anything with corn in it. I am so making this.

    I guess I’m hammy since I’m from Michigan. I love corn casserole, and would be happy to make this recipe anytime to serve my hungry family of six.
