Country Corn

I cook church dinners for 120 people, so I'm always looking for fast, inexpensive menu items. After watching a chef put this corn dish together, I prepared it at church several times. There was never any left over.

    Very easy to make and colorful. I may make again and try to leave out the tomatoes to see if that changes the flavor.

    My husband and I loved this. I cut it in half because it's just the two of us and it worked well. I used regular yellow onion because it's what I had. To me it tasted very fresh and not heavy at all. Next time I may throw in some minced garlic with the onion. This one is a keeper.Update: this go-around I didn't have enough tomatoes, so I steamed some broccoli and threw it in at the end with the tomatoes. PERFECTION! This is one of my favorite sides, and it's a great way to use up leftover half-and-half.
