This was a hit at our teachers luncheon and I ended up buying the cookbook it's from: Better Homes and Garden Easy Everyday Vegetarian.

I like how simple this is to throw together. I substituted caramelized, diced, white onions instead of green onions. I didn't care for the flavor of the green chilies, so the next time I make this I'm going to either leave the green chilies out altogether, or try diced red peppers. For the buttermilk, I took another reviewer's suggestion and added a big splash of vinegar to regular milk. I also used a regular size of canned corn, splitting it between the layers. It all turned out good and I'm going to try to alter it in the future. Thanks for posting!
I got this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens Hometown Cooking, and I like how fast and easy it is. The recipe I have says to serve it with salsa, and I like it with a nice spicy salsa. For the buttermilk, I just throw in a splash of vinegar with the milk. This is a great recipe when the cupboards are looking a little bare and you don't want to go to the store. Thank you for posting this!
This was good! I added more veggies (red pepper, carrots, celery) diced very small. I also added some cajun seasoning and a few shakes of tabasco to the egg mixture and would add more next time. No green onions.....don't like. I don't often have buttermilk on hand, but I do have powdered buttermilk for baking, so I used that w/ water. Good recipe. Thanks!
