🔍 FAQs

What can I use instead of heavy cream in this recipe?

Half and half or evaporated milk. Just don’t use regular milk! You don’t want any of the dairy to curdle or be runny. I’d try cream cheese before I’d use milk.

Can I make this recipe with fresh corn instead of canned?

Yes, sure, for the canned corn. For the creamed corn, stick to canned.

Is scalloped corn gluten free?

Yes, but the crackers are not. Substitute a gluten free cracker and you’re good. 😊

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Consider adding diced jalapeno pepper for a bit of heat!
