"This tasty corn casserole gets plenty of flavor from sweet onions, cream-style corn and cheddar cheese plus a little zip from hot pepper sauce. It's a popular addition to our church potlucks. -Jeannette Travis, Forth Worth, Texas"

This dish is great. My husband loves it. I did add some whole kernel corn and some applewood smoked bacon crumbled up and it turned out delicious.

We loved the cornbread layer but the onion/sour cream topping was gooey and unpleasant. I would make this again but just top the cornbread with the cheese. Thanks anyway.

I don't even know where to begin. I guess I wasn't expecting it to be absolutely amazing, but it definitely was. I brought this to a potluck and it was gone within 20 minutes.

Delish! Made as written with a few exceptions.. added some frozen corn to the creamed as it didn't look like much. Didn't use a whole onion and chopped instead of sliced. Personally think 2 w...

Sooooooo yummy! I have made this several times and it is always a hit. This last time I was a bit leary cause I used white onions. But the flavor was just as good as w/ yellow, no difference.

5+ stars. WAY TOO MUCH BUTTER needed to cook the onions. You could easily get by with a couple tablespoons. All the butter did was pool on the top of the casserole as it was cooking.
