October 28, 2020

The team at CHEF'STORE thanks Food Service Systems for their sponsorship and for sharing this delicious recipe with us.

Food Service Systems shares a casserole recipe that’s the perfect combination of savory and sweet. It will warm you from head to toe and is the perfect addition to your holiday table. First Street Whole Kernel Golden Corn and Super Sweet White Corn are at the heart of this recipe. Add some minced onion and a dash of hot sauce to bring the flavor to a whole new level. Topping the casserole is a combination of crunchy bread crumbs mixed with Swiss cheese that’s simply swoonworthy. 

Want to take a little dive into the history of these eats? Corn pudding is believed to have its origins in Native American cooking. The corn’s natural starch thickened the pudding as it baked. Now there are many variations on this dish. This Checkerboard Corn Bake is a fresh take on this popular casserole, though it stays true to the beloved combination of sweet and savory. There’s a story you can share at the dinner table!
