Sweet Onion Corn Bake Recipe

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."

"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."
