We’ve been making this easy corn casserole recipe for as long as I can remember. If we were ever not hosting Thanksgiving, this is the side dish I would take. It’s easy (like, my kid could make it herself as soon as she could open a can), delicious and it’s corn!
Speaking of easy, if you need an easy bread recipe for a holiday meal or any other time, try the easiest homemade bread ever. I make this all the time and it’s so good and I haven’t messed it up yet.
The Original Corn Casserole Recipe
I don’t really remember eating this as a kid, but the corn casserole recipe I use was adapted from the church cookbook from my grandparents’ church. It’s totally possible this was one of the many Thanksgiving side dishes we had at their table, but I don’t remember eating it until years later.
You can tell it’s a good recipe because it has ingredients on it.
I don’t really use this corn casserole recipe, though. I’ve never made it with cheese, and I stopped doing onions (we would also add bell pepper for festiveness) when the girl came along, because she’ll eat it that way. But I still pull the cookbook out every year just to make sure I remember how to make it.
My Corn Casserole Recipe
Every year I only make this for Thanksgiving and then I eat it and am sad I don’t make it at other times of year. Maybe this will be the year I start making it more often?
- 1 can regular corn
- 1 can cream-style corn
- 1 box corn muffin mix
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
Making the Recipe
Heat oven to 350 F.
Drain the regular corn but not the creamed corn. Break the eggs into a small bowl and beat until combined.
Dump everything into a large mixing bowl and stir until combined.
Put mixture in a casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. I use this round one we’ve had forever; this one looks similar.
Bake for about an hour or until the sides are brown and the center is set.
I always make this the day before Thanksgiving because it’s easy to reheat and saves some space in the oven.
Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving side dish? I hope you’ll give my corn casserole recipe a try!
