Easy Scalloped Corn Casserole
"This is my family's all-time favorite corn dish. The buttery cornflake topping and chopped green peppers inside give it a different twist," writes Nancy McDonald from Burns, Wyoming. "It is always a success at potluck dinners. Plus, it's special enough to plan into a holiday meal or buffet."
