Corn Casserole

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt (don’t use salt if using salted butter)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 15 ¼ oz can yellow whole kernel corn, drained
  • 14 ¾ oz can yellow cream-style corn
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, stir together cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. Sauté onion and red pepper in butter until softened.
  3. Pour cooked onion mixture into a mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients and cornmeal mixture, stirring until well-combined.
  4. Pour into a greased 12" Dutch Oven and bake at 350° for 45-60 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  5. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving to set.

Notes

For a 350 degree 12" Dutch Oven, use 8 coals below and 17 on top. Lard makes an excellent grease for the Dutch Oven and will prevent sticking.
