This recipe makes a HUGE batch. I used a 4.5L Corningware dish that measures approximately 11 x 14 x 2.5 inches. If you don’t have a large, very shallow dish like mine, please make sure to split yours into two different dishes or halve the recipe to keep your batter thin. Otherwise, the top and bottom may burn before the casserole sets.
Check your nutrition labels! Make sure you’re getting the cut baby corn that has 3 grams of carbs per can and not 47.
