Corn Casserole is a simple side dish, with only a few ingredients. Mix together and toss it into the oven. The whole family will love it, I can guarantee that! I made this casserole for my thanksgiving at my grandmas and it was a huge hit. My grandma has always made elegant corn, but I wanted to bring something so I thought why not bring something similar.
The casserole is so moist and melts in your mouth. Probably due to the yogurt, that’s used to keep this from getting dry. It has a few steps to it, but it’s mostly a throw together dish and let the oven do the cooking.
I couldn’t believe that we had hardly any leftovers when we were done. Everyone loved it and grandma even said “you’re on corn casserole duty from here on.” I’d say that means this is a winner.
What You Need
- 1 onion
- 1 head of garlic
- 1 box corn bread jiffy mix
- 1 can regular corn
- 1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt
- 1 can cream corn
- 2 eggs
- 1 stick of butter
- Parmesan cheese
- Bread crumbs
- Salt and Pepper to taste
How To Make This
Preheat the oven at 375°.
Dice up your onion and your garlic. Sauté that in a well greased pan, until your onions are almost see-through. Once those are almost done, add in your can of regular corn. Sauté all together for a couple of minutes. Sprinkle your oregano, salt and pepper to taste. Don’t be afraid to go heavy on the oregano, it adds a lot of flavor.
Grease your baking dish and dump in your corn bread mix. Add the onion, garlic and corn mixture into the pan. Mix in your cream corn, yogurt and eggs. Make sure everything is mixed together really nicely.
Once everything is incorporated together, sprinkle a little more oregano, salt and pepper. Sprinkle your grated Parmesan on top and place in the oven.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 375°. Remove from the oven and sprinkle your bread crumbs on top and place back into the oven for 15-20 minutes, until your bread crumbs are crispy golden brown.
How To Make Breadcrumbs
I prefer to make my own breadcrumbs for my dishes. I have tried the store bought ones but never liked them, making them myself is easy enough I might as well do it.
Take either your bread or buns that are getting old and need to be used up. Use the butt end of the bread and throw it in the toaster for a couple of minutes until Golden brown. Remove from the toaster to cool enough where you can break it apart by hand.
Grab out your magic bullet or blender and throw the bread in, in small chunks and blend it for just a few seconds until it’s crumbled.
Use what you need and store the rest in a container in an air tight cupboard. Make sure it’s cooled enough where the bread doesn’t cause any sort of moisture. Use as needed with your future dishes.
Corn Casserole is such a simple dish to make for the family. This went a long ways and fed almost 15 of us during our Thanksgiving dinner. I will make this every year for my Grandma’s dinner and I am already looking forward to it.
I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think of it. I bet you will be surprised at the feedback you will receive.
