To enhance the dish, add a layer of grated cheese between the corn-tomato mixture and the bread crumbs for extra richness. Drain the corn and tomatoes well to prevent the casserole from becoming watery. For a crispier top, place the casserole under the broiler for the last few minutes of baking until golden brown.
