I chose this recipe in our adopted recipe swap. I made one change to the recipe. I added a pound of ground beef between the corn and cheese layers. While the recipe was good, I think the addition of just a few spices would make it fantastic. Next time I make this, I'm going to add minced garlic, cumin, salt and pepper and a dash of cayenne for a little kick. I actually had to bake the pie for 45 minutes before the egg was set. After it was done, I topped it with monterey jack cheese and popped it back in the oven until the cheese melted. Overall, a good recipe that just needs a little tweaking.
