Description

This is the famous corn dish served at The Smoke Stack in Martin City, MO and in its sister restaurant Jack Stack in Overland Park, KS. Years ago when we were eating at the original Smoke Stack we told the waitress how much we loved this corn and she brought us out a copy of the recipe. It is delish and different than any other corn recipe I’ve tried.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 4 teaspoons All-purpose Flour
  • ⅛ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ¾ cups Whole Milk
  • 6 ounces, weight Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • 3 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Cubed
  • 30 ounces, weight Frozen Whole Kernel Corn, Thawed
  • 3 ounces, weight Ham, Diced

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Whisk in flour and garlic powder. Cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly so that mixture doesn’t burn. Add milk and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to thicken. Add cheeses and stir until melted. Add corn and ham and stir until combined. Pour mixture into a buttered 2-quart baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes.

I’ve been looking for the perfect side dish for our christmas meal and I think this is the one! Can’t wait to try it. I used to live in Overland Park myself :)

Made this for a dinner with friends, and it was ok but we all found the dish tasted a little grainy and too starchy. Wondering if the taste would improve with fresh corn?

Very good and very easy. I just made it tonight and it was pretty much exactly the same. Love it.
