      very good and made a nice quick supper, we loved the corn in it , something a little different. I had some cherry tomatoes to use up so I placed them around the top for a little colour. I will be making it again , thanks for posting.

      I used Olive oil instead of butter, and eggbeaters instead of egg whites. I LOVED this recipe. I made it for a brunch and got rave reviews. It was beautiful and very flavorful. I would make this even if I wasn't on Weight Watchers.

      Always looking for new ways to liven up my eggbeaters but until now never considered corn. I ommitted the butter and cooked the vegetables with a bit of olive oil. Replaced the eggs with eggbeaters as well. The results were delicious. Served with grated cheddar cheese on the side for those inclined.
