Corn casserole is always welcome around here!

Creamy, comforting, cheesy, and filled with corn, it is one of those side dishes that always gets rave reviews and disappears quickly when I serve it – which makes it perfect for holiday meals, special occasions, reunions, and really, anytime!

Corn Casserole Recipe

Over the years, I’ve tried so many corn casseroles – some with bell peppers, some with sour cream, some with the cheese on top. But what I love about my version is that the cheese is all mixed in with the rest of the casserole making it ultra creamy! I also like the kick that the addition of the jalapeno pepper gives my corn casserole recipe that just gives it a special little umph.

How to Make Easy Corn Casserole Recipe

Thankfully, the recipe couldn’t get much simpler to make. I begin by melting my butter and sauteing my onion and pepper together in it until they are just tender. Then, I mix with the remaining ingredients and pour into a casserole dish and pop it into the oven to bake until it has turned lightly golden brown and the center has just set, about 40 minutes. Then, you are ready to serve it alongside beef, poultry or pork – it works great with all of them!

  1. This is one side that I have never thought of for thanksgiving but I’m sure it would be a hit. It looks delicious!

  2. I love this! Such a great way to incorporate corn into a side dish than the same old way-dumping it from the can and warming through. Gotta try this!

  3. I love the sound of this. I like the mixture of creamed and whole kernel corn and the addition of the heat with the jalapeno pepper. And then Cheese…oh yes! Pinning this to try! Happy Thanksgiving 2014
