I wondered about the servings too. Both recipes I read said they would serve four. I don't want leftovers.

Hi dawa ann - The Cheesy Baked Corn is a casserole that yields 10-12 servings as a side dish, but if you were to serve this as your main course, it would be more of a recipe for two. We apologize for the confusion. -Editors of RecipeLion

great recipes..however ,i thought these were for of these served 10-12..not all recipes were for 2.

I love these recipes and have tried several of them. I cook for two and like the portion control.
