Recipe Tips

  • Be sure to drain the corn before adding it to the recipe. 
  • Use a skewer or toothpick to check for doneness. It should come out clean. 
  • This recipe uses gluten-free corn flakes, but if gluten is not a concern for your family, you can make it using saltines, club crackers, or Ritz crackers instead.
