Corn Casserole

corn casserole 1

Do you know what’s really good? Baked corn covered in several types of cheese and melted butter. Not something I could cook everyday. I normally make this dish once a year on Thanksgiving. But, I decided to make this today for the kids to eat with lunch. Fortunately for me they didn’t want to eat anything but this! They made a meal out of it and this will most likely be the only time I bake this for 2014. I just don’t think you should eat food like this consistently but definitely devour it on occasion.

Ingredients

  • 1 (15 1/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of Jiffy cornbread mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese

Directions

In a large bowl, stir together the two cans of corn, corn muffin mix, sour cream, black pepper, butter &  1/2 cup of cheese.  Pour into a greased casserole.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown. Top with remaining cheese and return to oven for another 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

Optional: to give this a kick of spice add chopped jalapenos  and/or red pepper flakes and/or a dash of hot sauce in the mix.

    I’ve never had a corn casserole before, but from the recipe it definitely sounds like comfort food.
