This was a winner in a Gooseberry Patch recipe contest. It's delicious and the salsa garnish adds a special snap to the finish and flavour. We love it!

We love this! Usually a side dish at my house, but could easily be a vegetarian entree or brunch dish. Attractive and colorful with a crisp buttery crust. Nice with a green salad. Use fresh tomato salsa when possible, but Pace will do in a pinch. I found the recipe in Southern Living and had posted but saw MarieAlice's first. Only change was a sprinkling of paprika before baking. I use frozen yellow corn. Thanks, MarieAlice, for posting another super recipe!
