    Shannon, thank you for your inquiry. Yes, you could bake it in a casserole dish instead of ramekins. Since this dish is basically already cooked, the baking is just to allow it to set and to lightly brown the top.

    My son loves the cheesy corn Applebee’s used to have on their menu. This sounds very similar. He would be thrilled. Is there a way to bake it in a casserole dish instead of ramikins? Thanks.
