Recipe Notes

  • If you don't have pimentos, you could use jarred roasted red peppers or roast a fresh red bell pepper and chop.
  • If you can't find Parmesan-Reggiano, you could use regular freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Store any leftover corn in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days.

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Combine the corn, onion, garlic, whipping cream, pimentos, sugar, salt, pepper and cayenne in a skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 3 minutes. 
  2. Combine the butter and flour to form a paste. Stir the mixture into the corn and continue to simmer until thickened. 
  3. Pour the mixture into a casserole baking dish that's been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Stir in the Parmesan-Reggiano cheese. 
  4. Sprinkle the top of the casserole with seasoned breadcrumbs and more cheese, if desired.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
