BE SURPRISED.  BE VERY SURPRISED.  Because, ya know, it's rare that I talk about food that I've prepared, unless it's in order to stand myself in a corner, hang my head in shame, and let you point fingers and laugh at me!

But, ahem, this time I'm waiting for a prize.  (Go ahead and pin it on me, Reader Dear!)   Last night I got the bright idea to throw sweet red peppers into the baked corn I was preparing.  (I've still got plenty of peppers packed away.)

And, ah,  the minute I pulled the dish  from the oven and  saw its deeply golden color and got a whiff of its intense, savory aroma, I had to have a sample bite....
 ( Forgive me, this may sound a little corny)   I took a trip to Oooo-la-la!!

Here it is:
Q's Corny Concoction
2 Cups corn kernels*
1 Cup milk**
2/3 Cup cracker or bread crumbs
3 Tbsp. butter
1/2 teasp. salt
1/8 teasp.  pepper
2 eggs
1 quarter to 1 half of a small sweet onion, roughly chopped
2/3 Cup chopped red bell pepper***

Supposedly serves 6
Place all ingredients in blender and pulse until  thoroughly blended.
Pour into greased casserole dish.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
Avoid over-baking.  Take from oven when "set".
*I saw a lovely large bag of frozen organic corn at Costco.  I also bought it. Now I can just pull from the freezer, scoop kernels from the bag, and re-close.  Magnifique!

**Preferably whole milk.  I used whole milk and cut back on the butter.

***I may have used as much as a cup of chopped peppers.  I really don't know.  What can I say--it was an experiment, after all!

(Dear Reader, if you make this dish, let me know when you get back from Oooo-la-la!)

You mean blend till it's pureed? Or not?

KTdid said...

Well, not pureed exactly. just well-blended. Can suit it to your taste in texture. Got it? Q.

Groans. Deep sighs of pleasure. We ate it down to the last crumb.

KTdid said...

Yum. So happy for you, sk!

I made Q;s Corny Concoction.
Thank you.
No blender; I like the chunks.

Thanks for jogging my Corny Concoction memory, Peezee! Time for me to make this again! Q.
