Okra and Corn Bake
- 2 cups sliced fresh or frozen okra
- 3 to 4 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1 can (11 to 15 ounces) whole kernel corn, or about 1 1/2 cups cooked corn kernels
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup milk
- 8 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup dry bread crumbs
Stir-fry okra in 2 tablespoons butter for 10 minutes. Place in baking dish alternating layers with drained corn. Make a white sauce by melting remaining butter in a saucepan over low heat and blending in flour. Milk should be added all at once, cooking quickly and stirring constantly. Cheese is stirred in until blended. Pour this mixture over vegetables. Melt remaining 1 or 2 tablespoons of butter and toss with bread crumbs. Sprinkle buttered crumbs over casserole. Bake at 350¡ for approximately 45 minutes, until the casserole is heated through and the crumbs are brown.
