Festive Corn Casserole

While we love the idea of more complex dishes like risotto and savory soufflés, sometimes you just have to be able to throw some ingredients together in a casserole dish, toss it in the oven, and viola! -- you've got a delicious homemade dinner. Well, this is that dish. It's similar to a quiche in that it uses egg as its binder, but its main ingredients are fresh veggies, so it's exploding with fresh flavor. This particular recipe doesn't call for cheese, but you can certainly change things up a bit by adding in some Swiss or cheddar. You can also even make this dish a complete meal by including a protein like cooked chicken or turkey.
