Corn brightens up any meal with its sunny color and sweet crispness. I decided to create a casserole that combined corn, mushrooms and a rich cheesy sauce. I succeeded with this recipe. It's an easy dish to make and a popular part of any party buffet. —Mary Jones, Cumberland, Maine

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, saute green pepper and onion in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Stir in flour, cream corn, salt and pepper until blended. Add cream cheese; stir until melted. Stir in the whole kernel corn, mushrooms and Swiss cheese.
  2. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Melt remaining butter; toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle over the corn mixture.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through.
Soft Bread Crumbs
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
