Uneasy sit the haunches of those constrained to ride the fluttery windup planes that carry travelers beyond the hub airports to land - or rather, skip and frolic - on gopher-pocked grassy fields. Most of these nervous passengers merely bite their nails; the tough-minded struggle to get some work done, take notes, or make plans.
Dr. Gary Fauskin prefers to devise recipes, and his French Gulch Corn Casserole is the happy result of his self-adminstered in-flight psycho-therapy.
On a recent trip from San Jose to Redding en route to French Gulch, he corn casseroles and planning improvements. This is his winning formula.
Melt butter in a 10-12" frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell pepper; stir often until vegetables are limp, 5-8 minutes. Remove
from heat and mix in corn, cilantro, tomatoes, cornstarch mixture, and salt and pepper to taste.
Scrape mixture into a shallow 1-½ quart casserole; sprinkle with cheese. Bake in a 350'F. oven until bubbling around edges, 30-40 minutes.
