Easy Potluck Dish – Corn Fritter Casserole

Browsing thru the internet inspired me to make this dish for the weekend of the 4th. I already had all the ingredients on hand, it was a cinch to make & is was great side dish for a potluck rendevous.

My take: It was a perfect dish for my family’s potluck. However, it needed something to spice it up. I think next time (as I will definitlely make this again) I will add some jalapeno slices or even some medium chili powder. A little spice & cerveza always goes well together.
