The food service people at the university did this one for a party at the president’s house. It was such a hit, that they shared the recipe.


2 cups of corn (fresh, canned, or frozen)
4 eggs, beaten
½ cup Monterey Jack Cheese (grated)
½ cup of Cheddar Cheese (grated)
½ cup of red or green bell peppers
1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
3 teaspoon of sugar
½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of ground chipotle pepper
1 cup of milk
1 cup of heavy cream
Garnish with chives


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine corn, eggs, and grated cheeses. In another bowl mix together flour, sugar, salt, chipotle pepper, bell pepper and add to egg mixture. Stir in milk, heavy cream and melted butter. Pour into a lightly oiled gratin dish. Place dish in a larger pan and add water to halfway up the side of dish. Place in oven and bake for one hour or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Garnish with chives. [See also Corn Souffle].
