This side dish is so easy you’ll find yourself memorizing the recipe and sharing it with everyone who tries the dish. This Corn Casserole actually uses two different kinds of canned corn including one classic canned corn and one can of creamed corn.

Hey everyone, it’s Sabrina again from Dinner, then Dessert. This month I’m happy to bring you guys an easy side dish! We love this recipe and truth be told I have it memorized and so does my husband! AND, its so easy to make he even makes it sometimes to help out while I’m cooking!

The only even mildly confusing part (read: hubby’s mistake), make sure you pay attention to the recipe before adding, the whole kernel corn is drained, the creamed corn is not.

Looking to double the recipe for the holidays? Make sure you keep the pan the same depth even if larger, then add an additional ten minutes to the cook time and start checking for doneness (you want a slight golden brown crispy exterior).

  1. Ahhhh shoot. I used an oval gratin/casserole instead of an 8×8 and it’s nicely golden brown on top after an hour but still quite jiggly! What is the center supposed to be like? I can always tent it til the consistency is right.

  2. I am going to double this recipe and cook it in the oven but in my crock-pot crock. So……it will be in a deep pot Should I cook it longer than specified? Will the center cook?
