  • Cut corn from cobs. There should be about 4 or 5 cups of corn kernels. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the corn, and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the bacon and salt, and remove from heat.

  • Spread a layer of the corn mixture into the bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish, then layer with tomatoes. Repeat layers twice, ending with tomatoes on the top.

  • Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until corn is tender.

My husband and I enjoyed this a lot. I changed the prep. a bit. Instead of sauteeing corn (used frozen) I mixed all ingredients together and baked. Added one green onion; used low fat marg. and turkey bacon; omitted salt. Very flavorful and would be great for a picnic. Read More

Kudos Ronda. My husband and I loved this recipe. The only thing I'll do differently the next time is peel the tomatoes. The skin is tough after baking. Read More

Oh my goodness! I have tried many recipes from allrecipes but this is by far the very best dish I have made and I have to be honest while I love both corn and tomatoes I never would have thought of using them together in a dish this way. I really can't say enough good things about it but I ll try with a few: every bite tastes like a little bit of summer in your mouth. So good. I made it exactly as written with 2 exceptions. I added pepper and 2 sliced green onions which I layered along with the tomatoes and corn. Oh and I did not melt the butter beforehand just put it in the skillet with the corn to cook briefly as recommended. I guess that makes 3 things I did slightly differently but I just thought of one more: I only made 2 layers and I did not wind up with tomatoes but sprinkled remaining corn/green onions on top. Oh yeah. I almost forgot that I only baked it for like 25 minutes and that was plenty of time. My husband loved it and I will definitely be making this dish again. We only had a small amount left over (which I had for lunch the next day) so I would say this would feed 2-3 people. What a perfect dish! Read More

This recipe was very colorful but lacked a blended flavor. It tasted like corn tomatoes and bacon but not the "casserole type" flavor like I had hoped. I think it would turn out better with crushed tomatoes (rather than fresh sliced)and fresh herbs. Read More

I loved it...instead of butter I sauted the corn in the bacon drippings (dairy allergy for some at the party) Plan to try with frozen corn out of season. Read More
