This was pretty good, and I''ll probably make it again with a few changes. I''ll cut the salt in half, or maybe to just 1 tsp, and I won't bake as long. A crispy bottom sounds nice, but mine got too brown and the sides stuck.

I make a similar recipe that my best online friend Astrid Fletcher shared with me and it rocks! This is my alltime favorite recipe. We use 2 boxes of Yellow Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix though and then add 1 onion, 1 cup cheddar cheese,2/3 Cup Milk,3 eggs,10 slices pickled jalepenos diced finely and 1/2 lb cooked crumbled bacon. Bake in greased pan at 375 until done. I am considering trying this recipe for something differernt as well. Thank you for your recipe. I will review it once I get the full ingredients to try it.

I chose this recipe for PAC Fall 2008. It was delicious! The jalapenos added the kick and cream corn added the moistness. This is a keeper. Thanks Vicki.
