The holidays are around the corner. Halloween has come and gone, then it’s Thanksgiving later this month, Christmas, and then a new year will be here.
One of my favorite parts of the holidays is to be with family, continue traditions for my own family, and well, let’s face it, the food.
Holiday food is THE best.
Several years ago, my mom, Julie, made this corn casserole recipe. Since then, we have made it for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and many, many times for dinner.
My husband has a deep, deep love for corn casserole, so I decided to make it to go with his first meal back home after his 8-month deployment. He requested a chicken fried steak with gravy, a loaded baked potato, okra, and corn casserole.
Super easy, everyday ingredients!
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 9″ x 13″ with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix 1 can drained whole kernel corn, 1 can cream corn, 1 cup sour cream, 1 package of Jiffy corn muffin mix, and 1 stick of melted butter. If you want to kick it up a notch, you can throw in a can of diced green chiles!
Next, spread the mixture evenly into the greased baking dish.
*By the way, this Corning Ware dish was my great-grandmother, Mama Jean’s. She would be be 95 if she were still alive. She was the sweetest woman and it would have made her so proud to see I am still using her dishes to bake with.
Place into the oven and bake for 45 minutes. After the 45 minutes, spread about a cup of cheddar cheese over the top and return to the oven for about 5-10 more minutes until the cheese is completely melted.
