If you’ve never tasted the creamy goodness that is corn casserole, you’re in for a treat. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, we whip up multiple dishes of this holiday staple. It’s both delicious and ridiculously easy to make, only requiring five ingredients. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, you can sweeten it up with a sprinkle of sugar, making it the perfect dessert-like side dish (next to your candied yam, perhaps?).
Blogger Two Sisters Crafting breaks down the simple corn casserole dish on her blog, which also includes easy-to-follow directions of the process, start to finish. Using only one bowl, you mix all the ingredients, pop it in the oven, top it with cheese and voila!
Her version is a more savory style, one she describes as a “cornbread-like dish.”
For another savory, slightly more nuanced version of corn casserole, head to Spend With Pennies. The recipe there incorporates fresh herbs into the mix. Buttery and golden in color, she opts for fresh corn over frozen, though she admits the frozen variety works just as well. For an extra special casserole, she adds in crumbled bacon, minced onion and/or jalapenos and a cup of cheddar cheese. What’s not to love?
Another standard version of the corn casserole, or corn pudding, can be found at Tastes of Lizzy T. Though her recipe is, again, just five ingredients, she suggests several variations. For a lighter, fluffier pudding, add two eggs, and for a sweeter style, add more sugar.
I personally love more of a souffle-style pudding, so we opt for adding eggs and sugar. The options are pretty much endless.
