Description

Creamy corn casserole is a comforting side dish that is creamy, savory, slightly sweet, and filling — a classic and traditional Thanksgiving holiday side.


Ingredients

Units

For the corn muffin mix:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the wet ingredients:

  • 1 (15 oz.) can whole corn kernels, drained
  • 1 (15 oz.) can creamed corn (or 2 cups thawed frozen corn)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (or melted butter)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, make the corn muffin mix by combining flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk together until evenly distributed and set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk well to combine the wet ingredients including canned corn kernels, creamed corn, eggs, heavy cream, sour cream, and oil.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the corn muffin mix and mix well using a rubber spatula until smooth and no dry ingredients are visible.
  5. Pour the batter into a 9x13-inch casserole dish and bake for 55-60 minutes until golden brown and fully set. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean. Optionally, sprinkle the corn casserole with cheddar cheese and bake for another 10-15 minutes until the melted cheese is bubbly.
  6. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature. 

Notes

How to serve: Serve this creamy corn casserole as a side dish with chicken, turkey, or pork. Add nutritious sides like roasted potatoes, broccoli, carrots, brussels sprouts, or green beans for a complete meal. It also pairs well with stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and biscuits

How to store: Allow the corn casserole to cool to room temperature (to prevent any condensation from making it soggy), then store covered with plastic cling wrap in the refrigerator for 3-4 days (or transfer to an airtight container).

How to reheat: Corn casserole reheats really well. Reheat in a 300 F preheated oven for about 10 minutes until warmed through.

Make it your own: Consider customizing your creamy corn casserole with your favorite green vegetable or cheese! I recommend green onions. And while cheddar cheese is a favorite, pepper jack and Monterey jack are also winners!
