  1. I actually had my teens make this tonight to add to dinner. Super easy to put together and was really tasty. Highly recommend!

  2. Sounds amazing! We have always used saltines but going to try with Town House this year. Haven’t tried it yet but I plan to add some sour cream and mayonnaise along with some onion, bacon, parmesan and a little chili powder to make a Mexican street corn version of scalloped corn for Thanksgiving. Praying it goes well lol. Im sure it will.

  3. Hi Sabrina,
    Is it 1/2 a teaspoon or tablespoon of kosher salt?
    As we can’t buy kosher salt here I was wondering how I could convert kosher salt amounts to other salts eg table salt or a coarse grained cooking salt. Do you know?

    1. Thanks for catching that. You’ll want to use 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt or you can also use coarse sea sat or Himalayan pink salt. Enjoy!
