Is there a more divisive food than cream corn? Some people must love it, as it's been a mainstay on the grocery shelves for decades. On the other hand, "Cream Style Corn" remains one of those dreaded memories of childhood. Mom had a special knack for whipping up mystery dishes from canned goods.

Manufacturers like Del Monte and Libby's offered up recipe ideas utilizing their golden goop. According to their advertisements, cream corn could be used in pies, sandwiches and sauces. It could be breakfast or dinner. If you squint your eyes — and taste buds — it could pass for Mexican, German or New England cousine.

Here are a dozen, um, let's say "creative" recipes utilizing cream corn that would tickle the heart of any 1960s lunch lady.
