This tasty corn casserole gets plenty of flavor from sweet onions, cream-style corn and cheddar cheese plus a little zip from hot pepper sauce. It's a popular addition to our church potlucks. -Jeannette Travis, Forth Worth, Texas

"Didn't care for this recipe - probably just my taste. I love onions and sour cream. Love corn bread. But just didn't like the combination."

"This is a great recipe. I made it for a pot luck and had several requests for the recipe. Am making it for our Thanksgiving dinner. I'm sure it will become a tradition."

"I make this dish for cookouts and family gatherings and have never come home with leftovers, much to my husbands dismay. I get requests for it several times a year. I have even added a few more hot pepper sauce for a little extra zip and it is always yummy!"

"I made this to take to a family gathering but I was not happy with the way it turned out and I did not take it. The bottom was way too soggy. I think the problem was due to the corn muffin mix I used.  The brand I used did not have 8 1/2 oz.  But my two sons ate the whole thing and enjoyed it, so thanks for the recipe. I will make it again since I bought more corn muffin mix  in the correct size."
