Gulliver's Corn

With Thanksgiving approaching fast, I would like to share my absolute favorite holiday side dish. It is called Gulliver's Corn. Until I wrote this post, I didn't know where the name or recipe came from. I simply knew that everyone loved it and it's a holiday staple in our family. After some research though, I found that this recipe is from a restaurant called "Gulliver's" in Los Angeles. The story is that the LA Times coerced some restaurant employees to give up the recipe. I don't know if it is true or not, but I do know that this stuff is delicious!

Be warned, it is choc full of fat, but what holiday food isn't?

Gulliver's Corn


  • 2 (20 ounce) packages frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Place corn kernels, whipping cream, milk, salt, and sugar, in a large stockpot. Bring to a slow, low boil beginning on medium heat, stirring frequently. Simmer for 5 minutes on low heat.
  2. Melt butter in the microwave, or in a small saucepan on low heat. Whisk in flour until smooth. Stir into the corn until well blended.
  3. Top with Parmesan cheese and cook under broiler until browned. Enjoy!

    1. This sounds good. I was just thinking about making corn for our family Thanksgiving, using "our" corn. However, my corn should have been picked a few days earlier - kinda "corny". This is just the recipe I needed to hopeully hide that. Thanks.
