Grandma’s Baked Corn

Donna Westray, West Allis, Wisconsin



My grandmother, Dolly Francis was German and Indian and was the first to make Baked Corn. (I did change one thing, using cheese crackers instead of saltines). I don’t know when she first made it; she died at the age of 92 in 1981. We always had it at family dinners and church potlucks. My mom, Nellie Ford, made it also; she died when I was 12 in 1954. My aunt Dorothy Seibt, Nellie’s sister, also made Baked Corn and it was her son’s favorite dish. Now I am a grandmother and have been making it for my family and for church potlucks. This photo is a 3 generation picture. My Grandparents are in back, my Great-Grandma in front on a chair, the two teen girls and preteen boys are my mom, her sister and 2 brothers.
