Trinidadian Corn Pie casserole is a creamy pie made with whole kernel corn, bell peppers, cheese, onions and cornmeal. It is the perfect comfort food! Typically, it is a side dish as a part of a larger menu and for unknown reasons, it is usually eaten on Sundays in Trinidad and Tobago as well as in Barbados and other parts of the Caribbean.

Grease the casserole dish and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (176 C).
In a saucepan, sauté bell pepper and onions and scallions with butter until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper.
Add butter milk and bring to a boil.
Strain Canned corn in the meantime but keep 1 cup of the corn liquid.
In a bowl, mix the liquid with egg, cornmeal and baking soda and quickly pour it into the boiling buttermilk while stirring continuously.
Lower the heat and cook for 4 minutes. Stir frequently.
Add corn and simmer for 5 more minutes until the mixture has thickened and is coming off quickly from the sides of the pan. Then mix in green seasoning and ½ cup grated cheese.
Pour corn mixture into a greased casserole dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Preheat Oven and bake for about 30-45 minutes, until the cheese has completely melted and turned golden brown.
