Casseroles are always a hit for dinner in my home. They are quick to make and usually only involve throwing ingredients into a bowl to mix up and then into a casserole dish to bake. Plus, they often taste better the next day for leftovers. This Cheesy Corn Casserole was eaten in one sitting so we didn’t have the luxury of leftovers. I’m cool with that though. I’m happy to see my family enjoy something I made!
Cheesy Corn Casserole
It’s a savoury/sweet combination of corn, butter, eggs, cheese and a little bit of basil. The topping is my fave – crushed soda crackers. They add a little bit of extra crunch and make it a little more interesting!
How to Make Cheesy Corn Casserole
To begin, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter, sugar, onion, basil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Stir in the corn, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 cup soda crackers.
Pour the mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle the top with remaining soda crackers and cheese.
Bake in the oven, uncovered, for 55 minutes. Serve hot.
This casserole would also make a yummy Thanksgiving side dish versus a plain ol’ can of corn. If you’re reading this in the summer, you could use fresh kernels shucked from your corn on the cob. I just used a can of corn to keep it simple.
Serve it with a side salad or some roasted chicken. It’s filling enough on its own for a main course, in my opinion.
