Red Pepper Spoon Bread

1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cornmeal
4 teaspoons unsalted butter
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup sweet red pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
2 large eggs, separated
4 large egg whites
2 teaspoons baking powder

Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 1 quart baking dish with cooking
spray. In a medium size saucepan, stir together the broth, milk,
sugar, salt and cornmeal, then bring to a boil over moderate heat.
Add 2 tsp of the butter and cook the mixture over low heat, whisking
occasionally, for 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in
the cayenne pepper and nutmeg.

In a nonstick skillet, cook the sweet red pepper and onion in the
remaining 2 tsp of butter over moderate heat for 3 minutes or until
softened, stirring occasionally; add the corn and cook the mixture,
stirring, 1 minute more. Stir into the cornmeal mixture. In a
small bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the baking powder, then stir
them into the cornmeal mixture.

Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Stir 1/4 of the whites
into cornmeal mixture, then gently fold in the rest. Pour the
mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake for 40 minutes or
until puffed, then broil 4" from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes or
until golden brown. Serve at once directly from the dish.
