This savory corn casserole is a cross between a corn pudding and corn bread. You can use 1-1/2 cups frozen cooked corn in place of the corn niblets, In the summer season I like to use any leftover fresh corn that I remove from the cob in this dish, I really don't bother measuring how much corn I use, so even around 2 cups niblets would be fine also! No need to add in any salt as the packaged muffin mix already has salt in it. Since my family likes extreme spicy flavor so I most always add in the jalapeno pepper, but that is optional.
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted (or very soft)
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 large eggs (or use 3 egg whites)
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (very soft)
- 3 -4 green onions, finely chopped
- 1 small red bell pepper, seeded and finely chopped
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
- 1 (15 ounce) can corn niblets, drained
- 1 (14 ounce) can cream-style corn
- 1 (8 ounce) package corn muffin mix (Jiffy is good)
- black pepper
- grated parmesan cheese
