Scalloped Corn

scalloped corn recipe

Scalloped corn is a comforting casserole that features this all-American veggie topped with tasty bread crumbs. It’s good in cool-weather months using frozen corn, though it’s absolutely fantastic in late summer using fresh corn. Though kind of a simple and humble dish, it’s also welcome at the Thanksgiving table. Photos by Rachael Braun.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 large green or red bell pepper finely diced
  • 2 medium firm ripe tomatoes chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unbleached white flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet or smoked paprika
  • A few grains cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup unsweetened nondairy milk
  • 4 cups cooked fresh corn kernels from 4 ears, or thawed frozen organic corn kernels
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup soft whole grain bread crumbs


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and sauté over medium-low heat until golden. Add the bell pepper and tomatoes and continue to sauté just until they soften.
  • Sprinkle in the flour, paprika, and cayenne, stirring them in until well blended. Pour the nondairy milk in slowly, stirring continuously. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the corn and simmer for another minute or so. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the mixture into a lightly oiled shallow oblong baking pan. Quickly toss the oil with the bread crumbs until evenly coated and distribute the crumbs over the corn mixture.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the crumbs begin to turn crusty. Serve at once.

    Can this be made in a crockpot?

      John, I’m really not sure about this. I’d worry that it would come out more like a stew than a casserole, but it would still taste good!
