Corn Stuffing Balls

My mom had many "winning" recipes, and this was one of our family's favorites. I can still picture these Corn Stuffing Balls encircling the large meat platter piled high with one of her delicious entrees. —Audrey Groe, Lake Mills, Iowa

    I have been trying to make a good stuffing for many years and finally landed on this recipe. Due to COVID, our thanksgiving gathering was small this year but these stuffing balls were the hit of the dinner. The corn added just the right amount of sweetness and we all loved the crispy balls of goodness. They also freeze perfectly for future leftovers. This is officially my go to stuffing recipe from now on.

    I make them every Thanksgiving too, but I am wondering also about make ahead directions since now my children are hosting... I add chicken broth instead of water and often put in my own herbs instead of poultry seasoning. I use my own grown Rosemary, thyme and sage.

    Is it ok to prepare these the day before and then bake them the next day ? Also should I wait to pour the butter on them until I bake them ?

    I also made these for thanksgiving and one other time. I'm always looking for something different and unique, these qualified. Everyone was amazed and liked them. I used regular corn instead of creamed corn since my husband doesn't like cream corn. It worked out beautifully. Thanks for being so creative. I love it.

    I made this for Thanksgiving, and even though alot of people were like, "Hmmm, is that corn in the stuffing?" Everybody loved them, and my sister-in-law asked me to make them again for Christmas
