IDEA CORN CASSEROLE

This old recipe from a 1950s homemaker's magazine has quite a unique name. I guess it was someone's "bright idea?"

1 small green pepper, chopped*
1 small onion, chopped
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 can corn, cream style
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

Saute the green pepper and onion in the butter. Combine the remaining ingredients and add to the green pepper and onion. Pour the mixture into a buttered shallow baking dish. Top with more dry bread crumbs and melted butter for a crunchy topping, if you would like. Bake the casserole at 350 for 20 minutes.

*Bell pepper
