To make your own Cheesy Corn Bake, prep your ingredients. Then, add butter in a medium skillet over medium heat to melt. When the butter is melted, add onions and peppers and saute for about 2-3 minutes. Then add the garlic, salt, and pepper, and continue sauteing for an additional 2 minutes, until vegetables are tender and garlic is fragrant. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside for now. Grab a 9-inch square baking dish (or round dish works, too. Whatever you have on hand). Add your cream cheese and sour cream, and whisk them together until smooth. Then add your corn and sauteed veggies and fold in gently. Spread the mixture out smooth in the dish. Then top with shredded cheese and fresh parsley for garnish. Bake in a 375° oven for about 20 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted and bubbly. Allow Cheesy Corn Bake to set for 5-10 minutes before serving, then serve warm. Enjoy!

This looks so amazing; I love comfort food, but same for special occasions to splurge on the calories. Do I dare incorporate mashed potatoes to this casserole?
