Pork Hot Dish

This recipe is truly a winner...I know, because I once entered it in a contest and it took first prize! For our family of 10, this hot dish always worked well as a "meal in itself", and it's a perennial favorite at get-togethers with our relatives. Also, I often use it to give a warm welcome to new neighbors.

    This was good.....the two males in the family really seemed to like it. I'd made it before and thought the corn in it was overwhelmed by the other ingredients, and since today's cans are smaller than they used to be, I added another can of creamed corn. I also added some cubed process American cheese, and used dry bread crumbs mixed with the melted butter instead of crushed crackers. I wasn't fond of the cracker top[ping the first time I made it. I used cubed pork loin that I'd browned, but found that it was so mild flavored that the meat wasn't really noticeable amid all the ingredients. I think another type of pork meat might add more to the casserole.
