Ganymede Baked Corn

Here is a simple, basic comfort dish. It works well any time of year. Can't call it gourmet, just plain country cooking. However at times, simple and basic can be more powerful a memory than meals we have spent many hours preparing.

Here is baked corn with bratwurst, yummy and satisfying. Now before the friendly scholars descend on slave for naming this after Zeus' lover Ganymede, let me point out that sometimes you never know what will turn out to be the best! Be sure to read the quick write-up about Zeus and Ganymede after the recipe. 


2 uncooked bratwurst, cut in half
1 (14.75 oz) can yellow corn drained
1 (14.75 oz) can of cream style sweet corn
½ sleeve of crackers, crumbled up
2 tablespoon butter or margarine cut into chunks
2 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs brown sugar
2 tbs flour
½ teaspoon SWEET paprika
Salt and pepper to taste.

Pre heat oven to 325 degrees and spray a baking dish.

In a skillet over medium heat, brown the bratwurst, top and bottom for about 4 minutes each side, just to give them a nice brown color.

In a large bowl combine the cans of corn.

With a heavy wooden spoon, mix in the crushed crackers, the sugars and the flour. Transfer to prepared casserole. Dot with pieces of butter.

Arrange the brat pieces on top and dust with the paprika. Cover.

Bake, for 1½ hours.

Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. 

Now here is a meal fit for the gods! Simple, cheap & good!

So happy to be serving my Master Indy

Zeus and Ganymede

Ganymede was a handsome Trojan prince who was caught away to be Zeus’ personal wine-pourer, so he might be among the immortals.”

Ever wonder why Zeus left Olympus so he could love Ganymede?
Zeus was king of the Gods. He had all the power in the cosmos, what did this young man called Ganymede offer? For to pour the wine for a God was to be his ‘cup bearer’. This distinguished the lad and said that among all immortals AND mortals only Ganymede was worthy of being Zeus’ personal servant & lover. And why did a prince give up his throne to be a servant?

Zeus himself had made the offer and Ganymede accepted.
Before meeting Ganymede, the god found himself in a ‘marriage of necessity’. Nothing stopped him. Anything and everything was the target of his lust and nothing could satisfy him until Ganymede.

Now there would be no more bastard half gods and Zeus stayed at home, proving that a good slave can change the world. No wonder they made him immortal. If he could do THAT to Zeus then he held a power beyond even the gods because none of them could solve the problem. Yet along came the right young man that kept Zeus happy.

Perhaps Ganymede offered something so simple, it had escaped them. Perhaps buried in his pure young heart was the comfort & support that out-shown all the flashy others. Perhaps Ganymede was simple and good, like this simple baked corn dish offered here.
