Flash Back Friday - Corn Cheese Bake


Corn season is here so I'm sharing my corn cheese bake again for Flash Back Friday. You can use all green or all red sweet peppers if that is what you have. To make it look more appealing I like to use both. This time I used hot sauce instead of crushed red pepper and increased the sweet peppers from 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup.
  • 2 cups corn, cooked and drained
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup sweet green pepper, chopped fine
  • 1/4 cup sweet red pepper, chopped fine
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 drops hot sauce..optional, you can add more or less as to your liking.
  • 1/2 cup (approx 12) crackers, crushed (crushed cornflakes is an option)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. In a medium sized bowl whisk together corn, milk, eggs, cheese, sweet peppers, salt and pepper. Pour into a greased baking dish. (6 1/2" x 6 1/2" x 2")
  2. Add melted butter to crushed crackers and stir until crumbly.
  3. Sprinkle cracker crumbles on top of corn mixture.
  4. Bake in 350ΒΊ oven for 40 minutes.
  5. Serve hot as a side dish.
  6. Serves: 4 to 6

    1. Helene, I'm sorry, I did not use a recipe for the beans so no measurements. I had raw kidney beans which I put in a slow cooker, added chunks of baked ham (which were leftovers from another meal), a few slices of cooked bacon chopped up, brown sugar, molasses, dry mustard, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Cooked it on high for 6 hours. All I can say is they turned out fantastic..I'm happy when that happens:)
