Yummy Corn Casserole

Today I I want to share my favorite Corn Casserole.  My daughter is a corn lover so we are always up for different ways to prepare corn. In my opinion this dish is part of the comfort food category and one of the best southern sides around. I have friend who makes an awesome corn casserole with onions, jalapenos and mexican cornbread.

It tends to be a bit to spicy for my kiddos. This is the recipe I prepare in our house and it's always a hit. I am sure this has been around for a while and it's nothing new, but it sure is yummy and definitely worth mentioning.
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together both cans of corn, corn muffin mix, egg, sour cream, and melted butter. Pour into a greased 9 by 13-inch casserole dish. (I used a 8 by 8 inch) It's really your preference on dish size. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with cheese. Bake an additional 5-10 minutes. You can also add the cheese to the batter it's really you own preference. 

or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes.

  serve warm.

Corn Casserole

1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
1 (8-ounce) package corn muffin mix (recommended: Jiffy)
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
1 - egg, beaten
1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together both of corn, corn muffin mix, egg, sour cream, and melted butter. 

Pour into a greased 9 by 13-inch casserole dish. Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and top with cheese is using.

 Return to oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Let stand for at least 5 minutes and then serve warm.

Cook's Notes: You can also separate the cheese and add half to the batter and the remaining half on top or add all of the cheese into the batter. It's your preference.

This is such a fun idea! New to your blog, but I'll try to contribute weekly. And I love corn--I'll have to try this out sometime. Thanks for sharing and inviting us along!

On the weeknight red beans and rice - I did not saute the rice before cooking. Just skipped this step and made my rice in the rice cooker. I began following the recipe at step #6. And, I used Hillshire Farms beef smoked sausage rather than turkey sausage. Just our preference.

Your corn casserole looks really good. I love that stuff. Great idea to do a Potluck Sunday link up! Fun!

Heidi said... #

I've never had corn casserole. It looks so yummy!

Michele said... #

I really like the Potluck Sunday idea. I usually do a Sunday Soup that I would love to link up to your Potluck Sundays! However, I didn't have one today because we aren't eating at home so I've posted some pot-luck friendly sweet and sour meatballs.

It doesnt have to be a recipe for today. It can be any recipe at your site that you would like to contribute. The Potluck Sunday is really kind of like a recipe swap.

LOVE this idea! And I'm sure anything you bring to a potluck gets devoured right away...

Tiffany @ Eat at Home said... #

Tina, I'm scheduling out my posts for the week and I added a link to your blog on my Saturday post, letting my readers know about your new Potluck Sundays.

Hi Colleen, I love potlucks. My husband says i will try anything. LOL he wont, but I dont him you just have to be open to different kinds of foods. He is a meat and potatos guy. Colleen I found a bowl for my salt dough bowl fillers. I have a photo so i will have to show you.

Tiffany thank you so much. I know it will take a bit to get it going. Nothing happens overnight.

I love corn casseroles. Yours is a lot like the one I make, minus the egg and cheese. I will have to try yours next time I make corn casserole! Congratulations on your trip to Napa! I read your post about it and enjoyed all the pictures. What an honor and what fun!!

Colleen/And Baby Makes Five said... #

And I'm looking forward to taking a peek at all of these potluck recipes too.

Your casserole looks really great. I stopped by just to say hello but stayed far longer than I planned. You have a terrific blog and I'll be back often to see what is going on. Have a great day...Mary

Tina, what a wonderful recipe to have on hand for a potluck. I don't know anyone who doesn't like corn. And yes, I would probably all some jalapenos to it, but that's me. Great dish neighbor.

Aggie said... #

What a great idea! I love it. I've only had corn casserole once or twice believe it or not, I really liked it. The one with the jalapenos sounds so good!

Love this recipe!!!!...we also do a sweet version that tastes like the "sweet corn tomalito" that you get in the big chain Mexican restaurants. Leave out the cheese totally and add 1/3-ish c. sugar to the batter... that is. a quick and dirty fakeout when you dont have time to make the real one that takes 2+ hours to bake.

We call this "Corn Pudding" and I've never seen it with cheese on top - we love ours plain! :)

Great idea, I'll have to check back for more recipes. Keep 'em coming!!!

Used corn flour in place of corn muffin mix.
