Escalloped Corn and Corn Souffle (Recipe Swap: Thanksgiving Vegetables)

Thanksgiving is rife with tradition. Everyone has his own “must-have” dish. Obviously, most families serve turkey and mashed potatoes. But, when it comes to the fixin’s, that’s where we see family traditions and uniqueness emerge. And while it’s hard to see the vegetables for the carbs, these are an important element, adding texture and variety to the menu.
For my family growing up, corn was one of our token vegetables on the Thanksgiving Menu. My dad grew up on a farm in Minnesota. When I was young, he planted the entire backyard with rows and rows of corn. Corn is one of his very favorite foods.
My dad is also a stickler for having things a certain way. (Stickler is putting it mildly.) One thing that makes a holiday dinner “right” for him is Escalloped Corn. And he is sure to be disappointed if it’s not part of the celebration. Now that my grandmother has passed away, the only one who can make it “right” is my sister Jamie.
However, the rest of us prefer this.
