– 2/3 cup sweet red peppers, diced
– 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
– 14 3/4 oz canned cream-style white corn
– 3 medium corn on the cob, kernels removed* (about 1 3/4 cups)

– 1/4 tsp table salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 2-quart shallow baking dish with nonstick spray.

Add onion to skillet. Reduce heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add red pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute.
Transfer vegetables to a large bowl and let cool 5 minutes. Stir in bacon, canned corn, fresh corn, egg substitute, cheese, salt and ground pepper. Spread corn mixture in baking dish. Top evenly with croutons and lightly spray croutons with cooking spray. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until top is golden and center is set, about 15 minutes more.
