- Eggs: Use your favorite store-bought or farm-fresh eggs for this corn pudding to make sure it all stays together!
- Milk: Dairy milk is used instead of cream cheese or sour cream to make this cheesy corn casserole as creamy as it can be. Feel free to test this casserole with unsweetened dairy-free milk.
- Butter: Either salted or unsalted is fine, but do not skip out on the butter! This buttery goodness would not be complete without the butter.
- Sugar: Granulated white sugar adds a bit of sweetness to this recipe that is irreplaceable and perfect with savory flavors. If you don’t have sugar, then feel free to try this recipe with any kind of sweetener.
- Onion: If you want to get ahead on things, then go ahead and peel and chop the onion so it will be ready for the recipe. Either a yellow or white onion is fine for this corn casserole.
- Seasoning: You will need the classic salt and black pepper seasoning for this side dish.
- Corn: You can use your choice of corn here: either fresh, frozen, or canned. I love this recipe because it is so versatile!
- Cheese: Shredded cheddar cheese is used for its extra cheesy goodness. You can use shred your own block of cheese or use the pre-shredded type.
- Basil: I like to use fresh herbs for my recipes because they deliver a ton of flavors, but in a pinch, you can use any dried seasoning.
- Crackers: Soda crackers are used for the crunchiness they bring. Crackers make this casserole moist and extra savory.
