Culinary Arts: Amazing Corn Casserole

Southern Food

Welcome to my online cooking school for southern food! Today’s culinary art will be corn casserole – the best one I’ve ever eaten. Since I learned how to make this dish, it always has a place of honor among my numerous Thanksgiving recipes. Try it; you'll love it!

Several years ago, I was invited to my brother’s home for a pre-Thanksgiving meal, and it was fabulous. My sister-in-law, Laverne, is an amazing cook. She’s a registered nurse and cooks healthy meals most of the time, but at Thanksgiving and Christmas, she pulls out all the stops! I knew the spread would be wonderful, and I wasn’t disappointed.

Among all the cakes, pies, meats, breads, and casseroles, I discovered my favorite dish – a corn casserole. I’ve always loved corn, but this blew me away! I just had to have the recipe, and of course, I made my own changes, as I am wont to do. If you’ve attended any of my other online cooking classes, you know this.

This recipe uses the frozen tubes of white creamed corn. Let me warn you in advance – don’t try to save a few pennies by using the cheap brand. Use a well-known brand for the best results. Also, the following recipe calls for diced red bell pepper, but if you’re making this for Thanksgiving, you might want to add a mixture of red, green, and orange bell pepper for more autumn color.

Holle’s corn and cheese casserole


What you’ll need:


2 tubes frozen white creamed corn

1 cup cooked yellow niblet corn (fresh or frozen is best)

1 cup diced red bell pepper

2 eggs, beaten

1 stick butter, melted

1 ½ cups grated sharp cheddar

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Thaw frozen corn in a large microwave-safe bowl, but zap it just until thawed – don’t cook it. It should still be cool. Stir in the niblet corn and the red pepper and stir.

Add beaten eggs, butter, cheese, and salt and pepper. Mix well.

Pour into a large casserole dish and bake at 350 for about an hour.

I used to attend church with a woman who made an awesome corn casserole. I bet yours is just as good if not better. Think I will try to talk my wife into making some.

Am I the only one who's never heard of a "frozen tube of white creamed corn?" Jeeze, here in California we have cans of creamed yellow, but I don't think I've even seen white canned...Lord, maybe it's there and I've never looked!!!

I have to go shopping today and will make it a point-this recipe sounds awesome!

I think I've put on 10 pounds reading all about corn and beans this morning - I may have to skip lunch now - between yours and mine, I'm hungry all the time!

Laurel - DO NOT USE CaNNED CORN!! Look for the frozen corn in an oblong plastic package. It's shaped kinda like an ear of corn.

Yes I did - wow! The first one out of the box. I was smiling from ear to ear - and isn't that quite clever seeing as we are talking about CORN! I'm so exhausted I think I may have to sleep through several 'rounds' but working on staying ahead. I have my mom and my son Pat coming in a week from today and I'm racing the clock. If there's one contest I want to be in, it's this one because it happens to be one of my fav topics - so will hope to muddle through and keep on writing....she takes a licking and keeps on ticking....I expect to see your name up there in any number of categories, Spanky!
